Normal, light and zero

Apparently one cannot sell a soft drink called light to men, it has be called something else, like zero. Normal Coca Cola contains sugar, caffeine, the secret ingredient, E338 and E150d, the sugar free version light and zero both contain E950, E951, E952, zero also contains E331 while light instead contains E330 and E221.

Common ingredients stated as E:
E338 - phosphoric acid - gives a tangy taste - can lead to lower bone density and can be used to remove rust
E150d - Sulphite ammonia caramel - colouring agent

Sweeteners:
E950 - Acesulfam K
E951 - Aspartam - could be carcinogenic upon sustained long time exposure
E952 - cyclamate

Preservatives specific to the sweetened versions:
E331 - sodium citrate - preservative and gives sour flavour
E330 - citric acid - preservative and gives sour flavour
E221 - sodium sulphate - preservative

Btw:
One of the current commercials for CC zero very much looks inspired by Michael Jackson's music videos. It is ok for a man to be androgyn or metrosexual?

i found three articles this year about links between aspartame and cancer on Web of Science. None of the studies and reviews could confirm any such link. Which does not mean there is not a link. But would there have been a great risk it should have shown up, or what do you think? ...

Welll i think the risk its allways there, its ana artificial substitute when theres a lot more healthy alternatifes like fruit sugars and no sugar at all in some cases ;)
