There is no doubt that Diet Soda presents Danger to Your Health. Think twice before you pour that DIET soda: The aspartame (NutraSweet) in diet soda, when left at room temperature, breaks down into formaldehyde, a toxic chemical that can cause cancer and birth defects. At least that is what Jennifer Chen, a 12 year old from New Jersey, found while performing a science experiment for school. Cohen tested three groups of Diet Coke: one that was refrigerated, one that was stored at room temperature, and one that was put in an incubator set at 104 degrees. Two months later independent laboratory tests found that the soda left at room temperature (which it ca be for months before you buy it) had the highest levels of formaldehyde – four times that of the refrigerated cola and three times more than the incubated cola. Large amounts of aspartame have been found to cause headaches, nausea, vision problems, and seizures in laboratory animals. These are very serious symptoms, and especially if they are caused by Diet Soda Consumption. Treasure your health, fresh water will satisfy your thirst just as well and a much better alternative drink, plus it is FREE.
