Diet Coke, the health drink of the '90s!

So far, how many "studies" have been debunked as total BS? Butter, anyone?
Let me count the ways. Grants (= tax = OUR $$) + "studies" = PC results that are there for a reason.
Globaloney Warming is a prime example.

Some studies are likely still unbiased and scientific. A few. But the entire process has been made radioactive by PC aka thought control and the desire for "correct outcomes."

Maybe moderation in all things as Grams would often say?

Being alive is bad for you, since it inevitably will land you in the grave. Eat, drink, and be merry. One cup of coffee and one Coke a day is not a big deal.

Because it tastes sooooo much better! And if it is 99% water anyway...what's the big deal?

DW and I have been drinking about a 2-liter of DC daily for nearly 40 years. We're in our 70s. Last week I got the bad news at my annual physical. Doc said I've only got 20, maybe 30 more years at best.

During the years I've been drinking this fatal juice, I've been warned about the dangers of eggs, now good for you; coffee, now full of antioxidants; whole milk for kids over two, now Harvard says they stay thinner than kids drinking white water; salt, now too little leads to premature death; chocolate, now like coffee; popcorn, junk food, now loaded with nutrients and whole grain to boot.

Here's my thought: All things in moderation.

Thoughts? Any heavy diet soda drinkers here?

I'm also mixed on caffeine since I read on one hand it knocks off your sleep cycle, but good to have a caffeinated drink because the process to remove caffeine is harmful?

Why is there so much confusion about which drinks are bad?

I drink coffee, a cup per day, bold with some cream and sugar. I tried decaffeinated and thought it tasted fine, I think it depends on the brand. Should I switch to decaffeinated coffee? I'm 6'0 188lbs trying to lose a bit of weight, I have the food down but confused on these beverages. Bought some powdered bags you mix in water for vitamin C, a bit acidic but good.
If you enjoy it, it will be labeled as bad. Part of the Control Freak's agenda is to take the fun out of life

I suppose then, that you don't junk up your food with flavorings, such as spices and herbs. Just eat it plain!!

I've been drinking Diet Coke for decades (lately the caffeine free kind) and I just turned 65 and am in excellent health. If it's a killer, it's sure taking it's time.
