Urban legends about your favorite drinks

I was taken aback by reading some urban legends about Coca-Cola. One urban legend that I had previously believed to be true from my younger days was that if you left a tooth in a bottle of coke all night it would be gone by morning. I guess that was just a way for parents to scare us into drinking less soda!

I don't know if this is a legend or true, but I'd heard that drinking diet Coke can cause stomach cancer. Apparently the chemicals in the pop combine with stomach acid and create acetane gas, which has been known to cause cancer. I don't know if this is true or not, like I said. I don't drink pop, except root beer in the occasional ice-cream float, but with legends like that floating around, I'd never want to.
