Yes, but they will just market another harmful chemical to take its place. In the mean time diet coke contains aspartame... it's not banned anywhere near me.

No, I think you'll find it's easier for companies to just use saturated or non-trans unsaturated fats than it is to develop a new substitute. They're pretty harmless in moderation.

Consumers vote with consumer dollars. If you buy a product at the store, it is kind of like you are voting for it to be sold. The way to change this is to not buy things that are harmful. And it looks like things are changing for the better.
Last year, I noticed that Costco is carrying many more organic products, at least in my neck of the woods. The grocery discount store in my town now has an organic section in the back, and it gets larger every week. Also, there are many GMO free products at Asian markets, as most things from China are GMO free and labeled that way.

not too long ago i noticed a neighbour giving her three year old diet cola. she asked me what i gave my grandson (lives with us) and i replied mostly pure orange juice, filtered water and one brand of concentrated flat pop with no aspartame in it. she asked me about the asp and i informed her of potential problems with development if this stuff is taken on a regular basis with regards to infancy. she ummed and aaahd about this. a few days later i saw her with her grandson who had a drink specifically marketed towards kids. she informed me he likes this better than the cola and has had it since about three months of age.
