The World Health Organization is expected to declare aspartame, the artificial sweetener found in Diet Coke, a possible carcinogen next month
I hate to be the buzzkill because I get it - I used to LOVE an ice cold Diet Coke and a Parliament Light!
But let this be your nudge to make the move to Coke Zero, which I actually think tastes better. And if you related to the earlier enjoyment of a DC & PL, let this be your nudge to put down the ciggies also...because I love you and want you to be around and annoyed by my voice for a long, long time to come.
Also, while we're here I want to blame my mom drinking a Diet Coke every day while she was pregnant with me for the fact that I am only 5 foot tall.
