Is regular soda better for you than diet soda?

    Everything causes cancer so I dont think that should be your concern! My dad never drank diet soda in his life and he died of cancer!It depends on your diet and what you are trying to achieve! Ill say first off that for 99% of people, diet soda is much healthier! Just for the teeth enamel/cavity issue it wins! Soda is highly acidic which weakens enamel! Regular soda is pure sugar which corrodes enamel and causes cavities! Drinking regular soda allows sugar to penetrate the enamel of your teeth and cause cavities faster than just about any food or drink on the market! It is even worse for your teeth than alcohol which is a close second (its chemical composition is very similar to soda!!!acidic and filled with sugar)!On the health front, regular soda is packed with sugar that open doors to obesity and diabetes! Diet soda generally contains no sugar or fat which is obviously better than consuming up to 50 grams of sugar in one 12 oz can of soda!Some studies have shown that drinking diet soda tricks your body into thinking that it is consuming sugar and MAY cause diabetes! But these studies have jot been proven, and studies on regular soda HAVE proven that it causes diabetes! So go figure! Many people also claim that drinking diet soda makes your body crave sugar, which is probably true! These same people are saying that you should just drink regular soda so that your body wont have these cravings, which is ridiculous! You can drink a diet soda and eat an Orange or a banana and your body will no longer crave sugar! And youll be about 30 grams of sugar lower than just drinking that one 12 ounce soda! If you go and get a 32 ounce big gulp, there are around 120 grams of sugar in it! You could get a 32 ounce diet soda and eat two donuts and comet healthier!Regular soda is pretty much the worst thing that there is to drink in regards to empty calories! I say drinking diet sodas is by far the lesser of two evils!

    Believe it or not, coke is in fact way better than diet coke because diet coke contains aspartame, a cancer-causing chemical. Although people choose diet coke
