People are gullible. They believe a lot of marketing ploys. Such as that "diet drinks" are good for them. But a large scientific trial found the opposite:

www.medscape.com/viewarticle/822722

WASHINGTON, DC — Regularly consuming diet drinks has been linked with a greater risk of adverse CV events and related death in a large observational study of postmenopausal women presented here at the American College of Cardiology 2014 Scientific Sessions [1].

Compared with women who rarely, if ever, drank these beverages, those who consumed two or more 12-ounce diet beverages/day had a 30% increased risk of a CV event and 50% increased risk of dying from such an event during the next decade or so.


CV= CardioVascular (Heart attacks and Stroke)

Be careful of what factories and their marketers tell you. Stick with what Nature provides.
