Another click-bait misinsformation article - it's not the soda, it's the calories.

Buried in the article - "The study adds to a growing body of research suggesting that sugary drinks can cause people to gain weight and possibly lead to a slew of health conditions..."

Well, if you drink soda, it is soda killing you. If it's the "juice" (er, juice flavored crap) the juice is killing you. Whatever label is used to sugar you up will do you in. Soda is just a name, whats in it, is key.

So diet soda is OK, assuming you're not doing stuff like eating more because of diet soda consumption.

No - there’s plenty of other studies showing how terrible that stuff is for you.

No. Bad for your teeth & terrible for your gut microbiome.
