CHICAGO -- Last week an article on what drinking Coca Cola does to your body went viral -- so now it's Diet Coke's turn.

Ten minutes after one can of diet coke, the enamel of your teeth is being attacked by the soda's phosphoric acid. In 20 minutes, your body starts producing insulin and storing fat.

The good news comes in 40 minutes; that's when the caffeine and the aspartame create a short high. But then your brain gets tired from over stimulation. After an hour, your body still craves sweets, which gets you reaching for another one. So news flash: Diet Coke's not good for you.
