    I had weird chest tightness/pressure for a couple months. It wasn't getting any better. I went for a stress test and blood work, which showed nothing, and came back normal. I voluntarily quit drinking caffeine, and after 2 weeks the symptoms were gone...

    caffeine. it's a diuretic, which pushes water out of your system

    because with the money you spend on that much soda, you could buy something else?

    diet coke is made with aspartame, which turns into formic acid in your digestive tract, which is the same chemical that makes ant bites hurt.
