Does this effect gout sufferes
It seems to me that the jury is still out... if you ask gout sufferers, they swear that asparatame sweetners such as are in diet soda makes gout worse. However, if you read the latest studies published in the British Medical Journal say: "data suggest that consumption of sugar sweetened soft drinks and fructose is strongly associated with an increased risk of gout in men. Furthermore, fructose rich fruits and fruit juices may also increase the risk. Diet soft drinks were not associated with the risk of gout". So they are clearly blaming sugar and fructose which is in regular soda pop.
The good news is that the risk of gout was found to be lower in individuals with higher vitamin C intake.
