    According to this article, aspartame doesn’t make it to the colon and is less likely to piss off your gut biome, unless I’m misinterpreting something.

    First, aspartame itself does not reach the bloodstream fully intact but the phenyalanine and aspartic acid do after it is hydrolyzed. The methanol enters portal circulation and goes to the liver where it is converted to formaldehyde, which converts into formic acid and urinated out. There are data demonstrating dysbiosis mediated glucose intolerance in rats megadosed with saccharin, sucralose, and aspartame.

    Second, there is microbiome located in the small intestines as well.

    Whats your take on the possibility that aspartame is less disruptive then stevia, which does reach the colon?

    It depends on the person. I actually have nothing against artificial sweeteners and consume them myself. But sure that’s plausible. More microbes to piss off.

    Certainly tastes like something I wouldn't want in my mouth. That would fit the criteria.

    I disagree, sorta. Frequency and duration of exposure to acidic drinks will dictate the effect on tooth enamel. Sipping on "one or two" soft drinks including diet soft drinks throughout the day can definitely result in demineralization of enamel. Saliva along with brushing and flossing does a terrific job of "repairing" demineralized enamel if given the opportunity but that opportunity is not there if soft drinks are casually sipped over a long time period like an 8-5 job. (Now off dentist soap box)

    I can find no redeeming quality in any soft drinks/sports drinks except taking up valuable space in my GI tract that could be used for real food or a more enjoyable liquid like beer.

    My dentist told me once that people who get cavities often have good gums and people who don't get cavities often have gum problems. It's rare that we are exempt from both at least according to this dentist. So my advice there is if you have shitty teeth you may just wanna lay off carbonated beverages altogether. If you have shitty gums you're probably fine. Most importantly if you DGAF about diet soda like yourself then......don't.drink.it. For those that do, drink on and just take this all into consideration as you do.
