Soda and Artificial Sweeteners
Is diet soda really worse for your health?
Soda is not a health food. You know, soda is usually this concoction of water, sugar and a bunch of chemicals that most of the time you don’t even know what they are, the flavorings and additives that are in soda.
Having an artificially sweetened soda really doesn’t change soda from a health food to something that’s not good for you.
So it does sometimes surprise me the people that are worried about chemical additives that sweeten soda, but they’re not worried about the other chemical additives in soda itself.
So, if you’re worried about additives, probably stay away from soda altogether. But the big problem with soda is the calories.
It is the thing, the worst additive in soda is sugar or high fructose corn syrup, or any other sweetener. High fructose corn syrup is no worse than regular sugar.
