Diet Coke update
Excuse me while I pat myself on the back...it's been six days since I've had a Diet Coke. I had a raging headache for four days, no energy, and just generally felt really, really lousy. Yesterday I finally had to take a migraine pill to get rid of the headache, but today, I'm starting to feel pretty good! I didn't realize this would be so hard, it's just soda, right? Now the only problem is I've been told that aspartame, the artificial sweetener in Diet Coke, turns to formaldehyde when it's heated, and that people have done autopsies and found a white film covering people's brains that was aspartame! Is this true? I also found this article, that lists dozens of symptoms of aspartame poisoning. Does this mean I now need to give up Crystal Light? Because that's just taking things one step too far! This being healthy is killing me.
