Drinking Diet Coke hot isn't going to give your mother cancer, for a lot of different reasons. I can list them for you if you like.

That's why it's useless to bake with aspartame and why baking with sucralose requires the addition of a small amount of sugar to make cookies. I'm a Type 1 diabetic, have been this way for 35 years and have extensive experience with both diet colas and diet sodas and how they interact with the human body. Saying that drinking diet soda causes cancer only contributes to public ignorance and spreads Internet-based rumors. 'Cancer' is a collection of diseases, not just one and these have many different risk factors, of which diet is only one consideration. If your mother isn't drinking a whole liter of the stuff per day (meaning she isn't getting nutrients from other drinks, like milk, juice and plain water), I wouldn't worry about it. Nor would I worry about her drinking it hot, though I personally can't fathom how she could prefer the muted taste of hot cola over a sweeter cold drink.


its legit all we have in the house besides water, I drink the water she drinks that, and she goes through over 20 2 liters in about 2 weeks


That sounds really unhealthy, no human should be drinking 96 ounces of anything a day, even water!

Unless your mom is a Namekian, then that seems perfectly normal.

Honestly, they link everything to cancer nowadays. I can't comment on drinking diet coke hot vs cold making a difference, although I believe there wouldn't be one. Diet Coke used to use aspartame as a sweetener (as far as I know they ditched it) and that was the main chemical in diet coke linked to cancer.

I think soda is soda, no matter the temperature. The only difference would be how enjoyable it is, whether or not you like it cold or hot. :3

eh even then its unlikely.

I drink a litre of cola a day (i exercise alot etc to make up for it ...bad habit that helps me cope with stress and depression)

Its highly unlikely even i will get cancer.


simply put, high fructose corn syrup is GARBAGE and one should not ingest it.

aspartame is also GARBAGE that one should not ingest.

its like tossing pressure treated and lacquered wood onto a fire. sure it'll burn but its going to spit out a lot of toxic crap while it does so.

keep an alkaline ph in your body, that promotes health. bacteria and cancer and other bad crap thrive and often require a relatively acidic environment in order to propagate well. long term cumulative benefit.


Cane sugar is garbage also which is whats in cola here.

Sadly you can't drink or eat acidic foods and keep a good body ph

It's not the "Coke", it's really all the sugar.

When you drink those sugar-laden drinks you might as well just shove tablespoons of sugar down your throat

google "sugar cancer"

edit: nevermind


Sadly doing that isn't as enjoyable or stress relieving xD

I think that's weird lol

For me, if a cola ain't cold enough, I'd prefer not to drink any.

It isn't really bad, but you should be aware that the State of California has linked being alive to causing cancer.

lmfao worrying about cancer when she's drinking soda. If she is drinking one every night then she has much more apparent issues.

Also everyone has cells that have mutant proteins from DNA damage; Thus the older you are the more likely you can develop cancer, due to this process having occurred more. Going full circle, a plethora of things can cause this DNA damage which statically is just going to happen.

We aren't perfect beings, though I'm sure idealists may attempt to argue so.
