Please note that the article states at the bottom that the aspartame part was not written by Gessner, but transcribed by her. Her only work was the part about water.

This is not to discount what was said, but there is no attribution that can be followed up.

Every evening I say to myself.

Self, do you want a diet coke or a Martini?

I know I have nearly killed myself dancing on tables and tripping over things with a couple Martini's.

So I choose the diet coke.

We all have to go some way.

And now for the rest of the story

snopes.com: Aspartame -- Sweet Poison?

Besides that, Jack Daniels neutralizes all dangerous substances.

Also note that the article ends in a link to purchase some $4 thousand water purifiers.

And I thought Scotch was the great neutralizer......

Just because aspartame is said to be safe doesn't mean that drinking soda is good or neutral for your health. Here's a link in case anyone thinks that drinking soda doesn't have any down side.

Look if some people insist on worrying about the effects of drinking soda think about the bloating and gas you get by drinking a big gulp size portions

Should have changed your way years ago. It's like the 70 year old smoker that was just told you have lung cancer. Why quit now

In much of New England, all carbonated beverages (coke, root beer, etc) are called "tonic" except ginger ale which is called ginger ale.
