  1. These studies should be banned. Bring on a study that shows a definitive cause. This does not. Therefore it is useless and a waste of money. People that have junk food, candy, tons of sugar turn to a diet soda just to fool themselves into thinking they are improving themselves. Then it is the diet soda's fault. Put the blame where it belongs. A diet based on sugar and high carbohydrate foods. A food industry that created this. And a government that subsidizes this diet. The top 5 foods subsidized in the US: Corn, Wheat, Soybeans, Rice, and Beer.
