I believe the body attempts to use the artificial sweetener as real sugar, this artificial sweetener acts as a competitive inhibitor in the glucose pathway to the brain causing headaches.

What do you fear more; potential obesity and diabetes or potential cancers?
So when push comes to shove go with regular soda? Does coke zero have the artificial sweeteners in it too? I'm assuming it probably does since it doesn't have any sugars....
