Rising rates of obesity and diabetes have led to soft drinks with artificial sweeteners being marketed as healthier alternatives to ‘regular’ beverages (although I'm not sure who initially thought that adding sweet-tasting toxic chemicals would be any better than sugar).
However, this study shows that drinks full of chemicals are not good for you--if this wasn't already common-sense. Add this to a large body of evidence that shows regular soft drinks are unhealthy for numerous reasons, and you'll soon realize that you should stick with refreshing water. Water = life.
