I drink the occasional diet soda (about once a week) because I'd rather not deal with the fructose in regular soda when I want some flavor... the artificial sweeteners used like aspartame and acesulfame-K have some loose associations with neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's, but I think as with all things moderation is the key.

Just remember all sodas are acidic and increase risk of osteoporosis, so get your fair share of calcium too.
