WARNING!! This is REAL!! Do you drink diet soda??
Obviously there are lots of opinions and controversy over this so I am deleting the original post.
I don't believe it here either D
I'm seriously ready to add a rule that says pasting email forwards will get you a permaban.
You should ask your neighbor if that's illegal first, lol
hold up, what did I miss?
She posted some forwarded email about diet coke killing everyone.

damn, i drink only diet now!
I refuse to drink diet soda based on evidence I once read in an e-mail that my mother-in-law's, son's, aunt's, son's, cousin's, bowl, dog-walker sent to me.
That shit can KILL you!

I sent you a pm asking you to either lock this or delete it. I thought I was contributing something to this forum that I truly believe as I am living proof!! I never said it would kill you. Yes, I copied portions of an email that I received from a friend.
My bad.....won't happen again!
ALL soda is bad for you, if you get down to it. But what the hell isn't bad for you. If diet soda were as caustic is they have you believe, those of us who have been drinking only diet soda for years and years now would be having all sorts of problems. Like, our internal organs would be swiss cheese.
Back in the 70's, I remember saccharine being in the news as a major cause of cancer. My mom had always made saccharine-sweetened iced tea, in addition to our regular sugar-sweetened tea. She had drank it that way for most of her life and preferred it to sugar (I thought it was nasty). Then aspartame came about and was supposed to be the greatest artificial sweetener ever -- until it was discovered that it was "worse" for you than saccharine, which was later vindicated as not being harmful at all (too bad it tastes like crap). Then Splenda came out, which is derived from natural sugar, and was supposed to be better for you than aspartame -- now you have groups claiming Splenda is the worst ever, and makes aspartame look healthy. And of course refined natural sugar, corn syrup, etc. is horrible for you too.
I ignore almost all health-related hysteria I see in the media, because with few exceptions (smoking, for instance), the risks are nearly always overhyped B.S.

It's getting to be a major problem lately. I fail to comprehend how there are still people who aren't aware of bogus e-mail chains, and believe ANYTHING from them.

Contributions are welcome and appreciated, just please be sure of what you're contributing. This is a tough crowd, and posting inaccurate information on the internet, especially from something like a forwarded e-mail, is asking to be eviscerated. ;)
+1 for the word eviscerated!
I promise not to copy and paste any more forwarded emails!
You're right! This is a tough crowd.. They'll annihilate you if you're not careful!!
My mom has been drinking Diet Coke religiously by the bottle For YEARS. she is still up and alive and kicking so ya. It may be bad for you, but everybody has at least one vice. mine is diet dew and energy drinks, others cigerettes, alcohol,,

Not true. We really are not that tough but rather just sick and tired of people posting things that are usually not true or just discredited all over the internet. CBARRY did the same thing like 5 times and then quoted the snoopes link which CONTRADICTED his statement.
Soda may be bad for you and usually it is for everyone. Drinking a lot of soda is not good just like eating a lot of fast food is not healthy.
If you're going to post something like that on this forum, you need to do some more careful and conclusive research before posting such information. In reality we are not a tough crowd, it just takes a while to get used to us
I'm not sick and tired of it. I lol when it happens.
I was excited to see a new article here!!!
I was just trying to better explain our reasoning for why some of us respond as we do to these type of posts.
I know some of you don't care but i sort of do. I want new/newer members to feel welcome here. I have to admit though, I am guilty of being "harsh" sometimes too.
It is humorous...lol.
