Ever since the early 80's people been on the kick to drink diet soda's, consuming man made sweetners and being told it's good for you. You see ads on TV daily diet this, diet that, hear the diet cola ads on the radio, see the ads in the magazines. Once you keep seeing over and over again you start believing.

Now, millions of people have diabetes.

Let's look at the reason why.

The iIlusion of decpetion for big business profitability regardless of your health and well being.

I've told people in passing about drinking diet soda's with many that said, yea, my friend told me it was bad but they still drink it. I asked, ok.. tell me what your friend told you? reply was.. well, that is bad.

Other questions I ask people while I'm out.

Do you know about Aspertame?
Reply was.. Yea I know about Aspertame
My Reply: Tell me what you think you know and I will tell what you need to know.
Reply: I was told it wasn't good for you.

Now, are you seeing the picture readers?

People speak but share nothing more then tid bits and never give educational value of hard facts that drives the point home!

Let's examine the content of every can of embalming fluid that people drink.

Compentents of Aspertame a.k.a Phenylalanine a.k.a Amino Sweet

Methanol [AKA wood alcohol/poison, 10 percent of aspartame]

Methanol/wood alcohol is a deadly poison. People may recall that methanol was the poison that has caused some “skid row” alcoholics to end up blind or dead. Methanol is gradually released in the small intestine when the methyl group of aspartame encounter the enzyme chymotrypsin.

Methanol, from aspartame, is released in the small intestine when the methyl group of aspartame encounters the enzyme chymotrypsin (Stegink 1984, page 143). Free methanol begins to form in liquid aspartame-containing products at temperatures above 86 degrees F.. also within the human body.

The methanol is then converted to formaldehyde. The formaldehyde converts to formic acid, ant sting poison. Toxic formic acid is used as an activator to strip epoxy and urethane coatings. Imagine what it does to your tissues!

Phenylalanine and aspartic acid, 90% of aspartame, are amino acids normally used in synthesis of protoplasm when supplied by the foods we eat. But when unaccompanied by other amino acids we use [there are 20], they are neurotoxic.

NO way or hardly ever,That diet stuff is extremity dangerous especially if you become accustomed to having it daily. I was using flavored seltzer I really enjoyed that but it affects my esophagus So cool water is the ticket or un sweetened teas when I go out.

NO! I drink distilled and filtered water . I have 1 cup of coffee w/ 1 stevia and herbal, black and green teas plain. I used to drink them all day but diet is just as fattening as reg. in the long run.

I've never been a fan of artificial sweeteners. I don't drink soda at all anymore. Before my diabetic diagnosis, I would occasionally drink a Pepsi, but not the diet variety. Once I became a diabetic, I used an artificial maple syrup on my oatmeal for awhile, but I decided I'd give it up and I did. Just please don't tell me I have to give up coffee.

HI Caliko : Coffee is fine I just completed a diabetes awareness clinic at my V.A . I have my coffee with just half and half and if permitted some time I use the unbleached sugar but in a very little amount 1/2 teaspoon.
You will get use to the true flavor of good plain coffee if its a good brand , heck you mite even become a coffee snob and just have to content with brown teeth!

Funny you started the thread because I also had a thread going on Coke versus Pepsi a little bit ago. I was surprised to find that Mountain Dew and Doctor Pepper were common choices. For me… I love Coke with Lime and Coke with Cherry but not Diet Coke plain (high octane). If I want a plain soft drink it's PEPSI. That's not to say that Diet Orange, Diet Grape, Diet Root Beer, or Fresca is not on my list. LOL. Just don't ask what I would do for a Klondike Bar. :)
