Aspartame may be the reason that diet soda consumption during pregnancy has been linked to premature birth.
Folks may also be interested in Aspartame-Induced Fibromyalgia. Regular soda may not be a good idea, either. High-fructose corn syrup may contain mercury (see Mercury in Corn Syrup?). And, it’s no good for our kids, either—see Diet & Hyperactivity. For a discussion of how studies funded by soft drink corporations may be biased, see Food Industry “Funding Effect”. I have dozens of other videos on pregnancy, too.
