Diet coke does contain a lot of chemicals starting with the artificial sweetener. A body knows how to metabolize sugar but does not metabolize artificial sweetners as well. Plus you have the carbonation. It is very hard on the body. 4 cans a day is a pretty good amount to drink as well. you might want to cut down for the sake of the child. Everything going through your blood stream is going through the baby's as well.
Yes. It is true. Because taking caffeine during pregnancy can induce abortion.
