    How many points are in a can of coke?
    I refuse to drink diet coke or coke zero because of the aspartame in it.

    Thanks x

    Aspartame is the sweetener they use in Diet Coke and Coke Zero.

    It's got loads of health warnings (i.e. cancer, brain lesions, that sort of thing :eek:)

    Sorry if I've scared you :eek:

    Maybe you should see if you can find stuff that doesn't have it in.

    142 kcals a can. Be VERY careful.

    I drink coke zero every day. Its not too bad, if it caused cancer it would be regulated like tobacco.

    yes do u not think drinking through a straw somehow prevents u from tasting it lol i think it fizzes up to much lol, or maybe my overactive immagination is stepping in......i love diet coke, it rocks my cotton socks off.....it is scary about that asper thingy.....did u all know also that it is that chemical that makes us, when falling asleep believe wer falling and then jump out of our sleep????????
