Coca-Cola Wants You to Believe Diet Coke is Good for You…Its Not

by Rachel Baker on September 1, 2013

Coke has a new marketing campaign that tries to pass off Diet Coke as a healthy option – its bogus.  No matter how Coca-Cola’s marketing firm presents it, aspartame is bad for you!

Multiple studies, including one published in 2010 by the Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine, have concluded just the opposite. Aspartame, they say, actually contributes to weight gain by stimulating your appetite. Other studies have revealed that aspartame increases carbohydrate cravings and stimulates fat storage and weight gain.

The link between aspartame and increased weight gain is old news. So is the fact that aspartame, far from being a “healthy alternative” to sugar or anything else, has for years been the focus of studies declaring it unequivocally unhealthy, and suggesting that it has no place in our food supply. Aspartame has been linked to brain cancer and to the accumulation of formaldehyde, known to cause gradual damage to the nervous system and the immune system and to cause irreversible genetic damage at long-term, low-level exposure.
