    My mind was just ****ing blown. A can of Pepsi Max has less than 1 calorie, or 0.3 per 100ml. That's absolutely insane! Just thought I'd share my life-defining moment. :p:

    Erm okay... But yeah, I knew that ages ago, I must admit I was surprised at first but it ****s up your insides with all the aspartame anyway so don't think you've escaped that easily.

      Please stop with all the aspartame ****; it's been proven numerous times to be perfectly fine unless you consume unhuman amounts, in which case anything would damage you. It's also been, according to news sites, wikipedia and other forums, the subject of "countless internet hoaxes", which implies it's being blown out of all proportion.

      Do you genuinely think such a widely consumed and used product would be continually used if there was undeniable proof of genuine risk to health?

      Is there actually any critically robust scientific evidence to support the assertion that Aspartame tears up your insides? No. Food companies introduced that myth into circulation because they make more profit out of the glucose/sucrose based stuff.

      So enjoy your Pepsi Max.

      Yes. Alcohol and cigarettes for a start.

      Yes, because the government receives money from taxes etc, plus they are a form of drug where one receives a high/different state (such as drunkness) from. They're arguably a big part of British culture too, although I agree cigarettes should be banned.

      I can only guess that someone downing a bottle of Pepsi Max isn't going to experience the same motion.

      If Pepsi Max/Aspartame etc caused actual harm, they would have both limits and health warnings/labels on them as with cigarettes/alcohol.
