Is Diet Soda Bad for Your Health?

As we often hear it, drinking soda is bad for our health. Does it goes the same for no-cal diet soda?

It’s widely known that diet soda is bad for your body, because it usually contains a chemical called aspartame—an artificial sweetener that’s 200 times sweeter than sugar. There’s a lot of controversy over its safety—the chemical was approved by the USA Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1974 but problems with the safety tests have since been revealed.

In accordance with the FDA’s recommended daily intake for aspartame, it would be acceptable for an adult weighing 70 kg to drink up to 21 cans of diet soda per day. How does that sound healthy?
