A study done by the Framington Heart Center (the Mecca of cardiac research), which was conducted 16 months ago, compared diet coke, coke, and alcohol. The study showed that the patients that consumed diet coke had the largest increase in insulin resistance, blood pressure, and weight gain.
The specific ingredient in the diet soft drinks responsible for changes has not been proven yet (but is presumed to be aspartame).
Reliable info from a friend. Just for your consideration. Drink everything and eat everything responsibly and with discernment 🙂
