Please Please Please I beg you to stop drinking Diet Coke or any other Diet Soda! It contains a ton of Aspartame (equal..sweet and low) This stuff is proven to cause brain tumors in lab rats. It is horrible for you! Maybe indulge in one or two a week (at the most)...but everyday is dangerous. My mother has these types of non cancerous brain tumors since she was 25 years old. She has had four brain surgeries and she was addicted to Diet Coke for many years before they came. The doctor's of course will not say %100 for sure that they are caused by the Aspartame but due to my research I know for sure! Just my two cents...

    I haven't had a diet coke for 9 years .I didn't drink any soda for 7 years then I would have a diet drink once in a while but never a diet coke I was addicted. But no more soda at all.Thanks for spreading the message. Artificial sweeteners are very harmful . emoticon

    Good for you for spreading the word. I always said that if I was going to have caffeine (& sugar) I was going to have the real thing because diet cokes (or dr pepper) just don't do it for me. So many people still use products that utilize Aspartame when about 3 or 4 years ago officials told everyone that was the worst stuff ever.

    I hope your mom gets better!!!
