Diet soda bad for you?

I was told a few things by a relative yesterday about diet soda. I was wondering if anyone has any info about the whole thing.
#1 Diet soda shouldn't be drunk warm, always cold. The chemicals and gasses make formaldehyde when warm. It was found during Desert Storm when Pepsi sent diet soda to the troops and there was no way to refrigerate. The soldiers complained of their tongues buring and these were the findings.
#2 After your body gets used to aspartame, it starts to convert it into sugar.
Does anyone know the validity of these statements? I drink between 2 and 4 or 5 cans of diet soda per day. I know that in itself isn't very good, but is it harmful???
