Some good news for soda fans.

The European Food Safety Authority has found that the artificial sweetener, Aspartame, is safe for people to consume at the levels currently used in diet soft drinks.

The agency has ruled out any potential risk of Aspartame causing damage to genes and inducing cancer.

The finding will be welcome news to Coca Cola Co., which recently launched an advertising campaign to dispel fears about Diet Coke after other studies showed Aspartame might be dangerous, leading to a fall in sales.

Aspartame, the sweetener used in Diet Coke, is also known under the brand name, Nutrasweet.
