(Regular Pepsi does not contain aspartame.)
Some juices are great as long as they do not contain high fruit corn syrup.
Please always read the ingredients, not on the front label because the companies love to trick people.
A long short story, (Federal and Drug Administration) FDA is not honest anymore, and FDA always let the companies sell bad stuff (included bad legal drugs) than good stuff. Sicker or fat people that the companies and FDA make more money than the good stuff. That's the truth.
Well, that's true but I don't drink sodas all the times, just sometimes.
Mostly I drink water and 100% juice or green jasmine tea from chinese herbs even mocha coffee.
I can't force people not to drink sodas, that's up to them but it is good information about bad sodas. Some of my friends say it's not good to drink soda everday but just sometimes. You have seen every fast food restaurant everywhere that always serve soda drinks everyday. So, It's not my fault...It's the company just like you said, money money money which is true.
Anyway, Thanks for your concern about Soda Drink or Diet Drink.
