    Very true. Here is a passage describing it's poisonous effects:

    Aspartame is an excitoneurotoxic carcinogenic. Because it's an actual chemical poison it causes polychemical sensitivity syndrome or MCS, so even if victims get off this toxin they often think they are allergic to other things, react to genetically engineered products, and synthetic sweeteners which are toxins themselves like Sucralose (Splenda). These are toxic, not allergic reactions.
    Neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock, M.D., author of Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills on aspartame and MSG, and Health & Nutrition Secrets To Save Your Life, described the toxic effects of aspartame: "Aspartame, an L aspartyl L-phenylalanine methyl ester, is composed of two amino acids, aspartate and phenylalanine, linked by methanol. Inside the gastrointestinal tract, especially in the stomach, it's broken down into its constituent components. In some instance the dipeptide is lysed within the cells of the gut. As a consequence the methanol is rapidly absorbed and distributed throughout the tissues of the body. Within the tissues, substantial amounts of methanol's two metabolic breakdown products (formaldehyde and formic acid) have been shown to accumulate in many tissues." If ever a toxin completely defiled the body it's aspartame. Dr. Blaylock elaborated on the breakdown products of formaldehyde and formic acid, which have been shown in several important studies to be extremely toxic to tissues in very small doses. "A study by Trocho, Pardo and co-workers demonstrated following aspartame ingestion, significant amounts of formaldehyde accumulate in the tissues. Formaldehyde is known to bind strongly to proteins and nucleic acids, forming adducts that are extremely difficult to eliminate through normal metabolic pathways. In this study, they demonstrated labeled methanol (as formaldehyde) accumulated in high concentrations in the liver (50%) and in lower, but substantial, concentrations in the kidney, adipose tissue, brain and retina. Within the cell, they found large amounts located within the DNA. It was interesting to note these doses were lower than that used in toxicity studies. Previous studies have shown that very high doses of aspartame may not cause acute symptomalogy. This study indicates the damage may necessitate longer periods of time to manifest itself, and that the eventual effects can be quite deleterious."
    In short, the aspartame in coca-cola slowly embalms you.

    I drink only one carbonated soda myself:

    All sodas are out.

    I recently discovered that Coke and Pepsi and most other sodas sold in the US and Canada contain (brace yourselves) 10 teaspoons of sugar per can/bottle !

    When I'm thirsty I drink pure spring water, and when feel like sipping something just for refreshment, I brew an herbal or green tea and lace it with a squeeze of lime and add a small amount of fructose.

    Well, some stuff I like a lot, foremost ginger beer, ginger ale and root beer. But as it's not too easy (better said: not too cheap, 1,39 euro the 0,35 can) to obtain in Germany, I don't drink it on a regular base at all.

    Nontheless I need "it" cold and sparkling, so I'm used to drink non-still mineral water.

    Self-made ginger beer is the best anyway...


    BTW being born near Hamburg I really recommend fritz-limo melon lemonade.

    I drink those that are sugar-free or with few calories. The reason is I want to be in shape.

    The labels 'Sugar free' or 'calory reduced' are outright fraud. Many calory reduced products do in fact have more calories than the normal ones (in joghurts f.e.). When something, like Cola for example, should be sweet, they put into them sugar ersatz products like the above mentioned aspartame, which is actually a poison. Fat free cheese (<-häh?!?) contains instead of the natural fat, highly saturated ersatz products that resemple the structure of oil, but in fact can also be used as laxative. Where this is a harmless variant, because people complained about that 'function' in oils used for fat-free Chips, the most today used ersatz products are complete synthetical, with absolutely unknown effects to the human body.

    You can as well apply as test person for medications

    Oh, right, since a few days tv shows ads for sugar-and caffeine free Coca (cocaine, caffeine) Cola (lactose, sugar)....hmmm

    Beer is not a carbonated soft drink however. A soft drink has to be alcohol-free per definition.

    Beer is not carbonated, beer is naturally somwhat fizzy by design: This is a natural carbonation process that takes place during fermentation - a natural way of producing an acid.

    If you distilled beer to the extent that it attracts more alcohol, it usually takes absolutely vile, but I can assure you that beer with 20% alcohol would be 100% flat.

    How do I know this? Compare wine-related products like Sturm to this and you will realise that they are fizzy because they are less further in fermentation. You will also notice if you do not fully wait for mead to settle.

    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    I rarely drink the sugary ones, but I do drink a lot of carbonated water. I assume that is harmless.
