    Jon's Diet Coke Resources

    I love Diet Coke. Just for the taste of it. I can't stand the syrupiness of regular soft drinks. The new can sucks, but we can't have everything. I find myself drinking several cans a day. I finally had to start going to warehouse stores to buy cases in bulk. A day without Diet Coke just doesn't feel right.

    Is Aspartame dangerous? I frequently get emails from the lunatic fringe patiently explaining to me how dangerous Aspartame is. If you're interested in my research and opinion you'll find it here, and here, and here. No, it's not dangerous.

    If you find a site I don't have here, please let me know. Keep in mind that I don't have a TV, so questions about commercials will be lost on me. If you think Nutrasweet causes all manner of health problems I suggest you get a life. Do some research before you believe crap you hear on the Internet.
