Drinking diet soda is associated with a 50-percent increase in stroke risk, according to a study presented earlier this month at the American Stroke Association's International Stroke Conference in Los Angeles.
"Now the health police tell us we can't drink Diet Coke," captures the tone on many of the diet blogs.
Hold the sugar and corn syrup and pass the aspartame. Some doctors actually encourage dieters to drink diet soda to cut calories instead of recommending zero-calorie water or tea.

...I went over to her house the other night to pick up some extra tickets to a hockey game her and my stepfather were not going to use and there were two fresh cases of diet soda in the fridge....
Some people just don't care.
Just imagine how you could feel

I switched from aspartame-sweetened diet soda to one that uses Splenda instead. I did it for cost-saving reasons, but accidentally discovered that aspartame was a major cause of the migraines I was having 3 or 4 times a week!
Since getting off the aspartame, I'm happy to say the migraines have decreased by about 95% - I only have a mild one about once every 3 weeks.
Bonus: The "Shasta" brand diet sodas are delicious!
