The more articles that come out, the happier I am that my body is super sensitive to foreign stuff. I had to stop drinking caffeine by the age of 17 and I have only gotten higher in maintenance since then!
All that sugar is just nasty!

You are so right Blackandi. When you see it up close it really makes an impression. Well, that is, if you are paying attention and care like you do. I don't want any of these "popular" diseases either!

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when itís a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, theyíre terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

I've always hated Red Bull...it's a good thing I just drink water and green tea. I kicked the soda and crap drinks on 7/12/08 and never had another again. It was easy to give up. People say it's too hard to give up, but have they ever tried to give it a try?

My DH has juvenile diabetes (now Type 2) and going through it with him (a recent toe amputation) does a lot to my mental...I refuse to get diabetes or any other life threatening ailment if I can help it. When I look at drinks other than bagged teas I make myself or water I cringe 'cuz they cause disease. For some people to wise up they need to get diabetes and other ailments and at that point it's too late.

thanks for both of those! (Anni -- your link worked for me!) It is disgusting and disheartening to think of things we could be ingesting that are so far past the realm of acceptable. Geez.

Thanks for both of those links! I have sent both of them on to my friend that I am trying to help with her motivation to cut out soda and other processed foods. (note: this is her own motivation, I am only trying to help).

If only people were paying attention and informing themselves! The link didn't work for me but I googled: Huffington Post 6 ingredients and found the article.

Great link there. Hi I am Julia and am new to this team. I just saw this discussion and thought I would add the info I just made into a blog. Along these same lines, but another wakeup call to avoid processed foods.

You will most likely need to copy and past the url, but it is worth the extra effort...guess what foods they are adding antifreeze to....

Maybe not but this will remind you why you don't drink this junk. Holy cow! look at the 3 on the right--millions of people actually make these drinks their daily liquid intake. Do we even wonder at the rising diabetes and obesity?
