A new study says that aspartame causes cancer. It turns out that according to this study of rats, people might show an increased risk of cancer if they consumed twice the acceptable daily limit of diet soda.
For a 150-lb adult, that would mean that FIFTEEN CANS A DAY would give you cancer. For a 50-lb child, that would mean FIVE CANS A DAY.
Hey, I loves me some diet soda. But, um, that is a hell of a lot of soda. Is there anyone out there who really drinks that much? And if your child drinks 5 cans of soda a day, is there any room in that little bod for anything else?
I think I'm safe with my 4 or 5 bottles a week. But, um, thanks for checking.
