    WTF. This "health warning" on a bodybuilding forum , reminds me of an interaction I had with a hardcore bodybuilder.
    The guy was a walking pharmacy and saw me drinking a diet coke after a workout.
    He saw me, shook his head and said ; " Damn dude, I wouldn't put that crap in my body."

    I smiled, nodded and replied ; " Thanks for the tip, Mr Natural."
    I saw a star, reached for it...and MISSED

    Compared to spring water or fresh squeezed juice .
    But my point was this "walking pharmacy" felt my diet coke was unhealthy for a bodybuilder.

    I remember talking to an environmental activists years ago, about air pollution.
    He lost credibility , because he was smoking a cigarette .

    People need to just stop and think sometimes.

    Too right. Avoid putting diet coke or normal coke (with 12 spoons of sugar) in your body.

    Bingo! LOL.

    It's like the NFL saying they are trying to ban steroids because of health concerns for the players . WTF?
    Excuse me, but I'm going to say the full speed hits in every game are a tad more risky for one's health.

    Ok, getting back to the OP topic.
    Yes, a gallon or more of green tea daily may promote a higher risk of liver problems.
    Doah! That's because the liver has to filter 99% of all toxins in the blood stream.
    ANYTHING , including Vit A or D can be toxic for the liver , in high enough quantities.

    Do you consume any supplements, by any chance? Any processed foods? Anything in a box or bag from the center of the supermarket? Do you ever eat out? Do you ever consume alcohol?

    Just curious.

    If sexybeast didn't kill it, grow it or cup* it with his two hands, it's not injested.

    Diet coke is only bad for you IF you have a rare , genetic based disease known as PKU.
    Aspartame aka nutria-sweet is the low cal sweetner used in diet coke and many other products.
    It is primarily composed on 3 amino-acids. One of them is the branch chained amino acid "phenylalanine".

    FYI, only those with the rare condition of PKU need to be concerned with serious health risks.

    Diet Coke is toxic shit. A cup of Green Tea or Matcha Green tea has main health benefits. The difference is one is a real and the other is full of artificial crap.

    You're right, but people buy into fear easier than they do facts.

    Aspartame is phenylalanine and ascorbic acid. Both which are fine (except in the case you mentioned). Together they make the sweet taste. And when they enter the stomach they are broken back down into those two ingredients which the body then processes as it would normally.
