Mold Inhibitors And Weight Gain
In no way does diet soda help someone lose weight. A study done at the University of Texas Health Science Center found that the greater the number of diet sodas consumed by a person, the higher their risk of gaining weight. Waistlines were increased by 500% by those who consumed two or more cans per day than individuals who did not drink diet soda.
Mold inhibitors are found in diet sodas. They are called either potassium benzoate or sodium benzoate. A professor of Biotechnology and Molecular Biology at the University of Sheffield in the U.K. explained to a British newspaper the following: "Severe damage can be caused by these chemicals to the DNA in the mitochondria to the point where it can become completely inactivated — they can basically knock it out completely." According to the Center for Science in the Public Interest, the preservative used has also been connected to asthma, hives, and other allergic conditions.
