I read an article about a new study that says daily drinking of diet soda may lead to higher risk of stroke or heart attack. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/41479869/ns/health-diet_and_nutrition/
I was surprised to see some comments on Facebook about this article that showed surprise. The surprise came from the claim that caramel coloring might be part of the problem. I concur. But any drink called diet is dangerous. There is just too much information suggesting that artificial sweeteners are neurotoxins. It is not worth the risk to drink them. Some people have a serious reaction to these things while others may notice nothing at all. But why do it to yourself? Soft drinks are not good for you. Believe me I used to drink them. I loved Coca Cola and was a complete “addict” drinking several a day for years and years. This was before they changed their formula and started substituting HFC for sugar. They have never tasted as good since. I no longer drink them except as a rare ( I mean REALLY rare) treat. And when I do I am always disappointed because they do not taste like they used to. As for diet sodas, don’t even get me started. http://www.mercola.com/article/aspartame/symptoms.htm
What about the neurotoxins in the artificial sweeteners? How can ANY educated person still be drinking ANYTHING diet anymore? Don’t people read anything about these poisons? Why would you drink ANY flavored drink unless it is made from something natural such as real lemons or limes? Artificial sweeteners will kill you. Dead. (at least that will be the end result) Why drink the stuff at all? I just don’t get it. If you MUST have a soft drink ….at least drink a REAL ONE. Best if you can find one made with real sugar rather than high fructose corn syrup.
Why don’t people understand that what they eat is powerful and will either help them or hurt them. it is not benign. It matters what you eat. Think before you put anything in your mouth. “Will this help me or hurt me?”
Here is a radical article the source for which I have not found. But it will make you think. Do your own research. http://www.laleva.cc/food/dietcoke-pepsie.html
