Diet drinks have been found to cause obesity too. If it's pushed as healthy, people eat and drink more of it.

I have found that what is considered "healthy" really isn't. It either tastes like cardboard or is loaded with garbage.

I think a lot of our foods have become unhealthy. I also think there's a reason for it.
