When I was younger, I used to drink a big bottle of pure orange juice and several cans of diet soda every day. Why? I mistakenly believed that fruit juice was natural and diet soda didn’t have any sugar…
Today, with more knowledge and a deeper understanding of the ingredients of these supposedly healthy drinks; I realise that this isn’t the case at all.
Diet drinks contain artificial sweeteners like aspartame, sucrolose and saccharine which are chemicals and there just isn’t enough knowledge of the long-term effect of these chemicals on the human body. Indeed, some studies have linked aspartame, the most controversial, to cancer. For more information on aspartame watch Sweet Misery
So what about fruit juices?
