The three largest makers of diet soda are facing separate federal lawsuits alleging consumers were deceived into believing their beverages would help them lose or manage weight.
Scientific studies show the opposite to be true, and the controversial sweetner aspartame is the problem, the lawsuits say. CBS News reports the lawsuits were filed in federal court this week against Coca-Cola, PepsiCo and Dr Pepper Snapple Group.
