Is Diet Soda Unhealthy?

I love a diet soda or two a day, but research is supposedly showing that it is as unhealthy as just drinking regular soda. Well, that's kind of a bummer since I began drinking it to avoid the sugars in regular soda. So, what do you think? Is drinking diet soda an unhealthy habit? Even if it isn't unhealthy, I have a friend that insists she was having body aches, restlessness at night, and other things going on when she was drinking the diet soda. She feels a lot better since stopping her habit and is sure this one change has made her feel better.

Yes, it is definitely unhealhty

Drinking all of soft drinks is unhealthy, better drink mineral water and reduce your meal.

I have read plenty of articles on how unhealthy diet soda is, but for me it really doesn't matter since I gave up all sodas three years ago.

I have heard it was from reading, but I have never really done any research about it.

Yes, it is unhealthy, doesn't have a great taste and it does not help people lose weight even though people think it helps.

Several reasons, from research: (1) fizzy drinks, even water, have acid in them that leaches calcium from your bones. You are more likely to break a bone if you drink fizzy drinks, (2) your body thinks it is getting calories when you give it artificial sweeteners. These cause an insulin spike, just like sugar, so those who drink diet soda eat more to give the body the calories it was fooled into thinking it was getting.
(1) research done on teenagers measuring those who drank soda against those who drank milk or plain water
(2) recent research into the effects of artificial sweeteners

There are so many unhealthy claims of taking soda already.
