Media Tells a Half Truth About Possible Link Between Diet Sodas and Strokes Among Younger People

It does not surprise me the news media omit a vital piece of information. Not to mention that Coke and Pepsi do buy advertising space on many of these TV stations. There has been a study that young people drinking diet sodas have been having strokes and heart disease in higher rates. They fail to mention of vital fact they seem to avoid talking about what is put into these diet soft drinks.

What is left out reported is an ingredient called aspartame that has been linked to many health problems. So why are they keeping it from the public? Because if the truth ever got out. Coke and Pepsi would be getting sued. We think years ago going after the tobacco companies was bad. It will look like small claims court compared to all the liability cases that can arise over aspartame. These companies can never claim ignorance not knowing the health risk to aspartame. There was plenty of studies with sufficient data to prove aspartame is dangerous

I was watching a report on one of the American morning news programs that dealt with the increased risk of stroke from drinking diet sodas and was thinking about the zero mention of Aspartame. I t is good to see that omission pointed out here in this story.
