[IP] aspartame research......cancer.....old age
You know, I finally got tired of reading about all that is good for you, bad
for you stuff.
Yes, the incidence of cancer and other health woes has increased over the
years. Well, ya know what? So has the life span of humans, so it stands to
that there are increased amounts of disease. (Don't we trade in our cars
every so often, due to increasing mechanical failure?)
I think, (as you know YMMV), that we all react differently to different
things. There are those, such as my grandmother, who has eaten bacon, eggs
in the drippings, biscuits all her life for breakfast.... she is in her late
80's, & still kicking enough to drive me nuts when she visits (though I love
dearly regardless). There are those, who have heart conditions, high
cholesterol and such from their teens. Those that tolerate some foods,and are
allergic to others. There are healthy meal choices, that can seem not so
healthy when you take a look at the nutrional values....granola bar vs hersheys
chocolate plain.....I'll take the chocolate, though at times I would choose the
granola, depending on mood.
Basically, if I get cancer from Diet drinks, then so be it. I can not/ WILL
not go around spending the time in my life worrying about it. I do not smoke,
drink, do coffee, or unprescribed drugs, etc. (and if you do, that is your
choice). Regular soft drinks do not react well with MY body. I choose not to
them. I ENJOY diet soft drinks, therefore, I will drink them. That is my
choice. If they don't cause cancer, or other ills, something else in my life
probably will, be it cell phones, tv's, computers, fumes from the paint or
carpetining in my apartment, or from driving behind that big truck yesterday.
should do what we can, to protect ourselves, within reason, but I would rather
spend my energy reading to a child, rather than worrying about such things. I
born. I will die. I will do my best to live as long, and as fruitfully as I
can, but I won't sweat the small things. I am not going to purposefully do
harmful things, like stand in the middle of the interstate or on the railroad
tracks. But just living can cause death.....(person killed recently sleeping in
when gun discharged in apartment above, going through floor into apt below,
killing sleeping occupant). Do we not take a large risk every time we
drive....go hiking (bears), rock climbing, scuba diving, living in Kansas
on the coast (hurricanes), earthquakes, etc.
Make YOUR choice about what you want to eat/drink, then enjoy life. We can'
protect ourselves from everything, and I am not going to try...as I would have
to live a very protected life then.
(Besides, regular coke has just as many food colorings as diet plus a lot of
calories, which with my sluggish, non existant metabolism, would do a lot more
harm than good, and yes, I like fizzy water with lemon/lime as well as plain
Make a choice..... worry and spend time on reading the woes of all the "bad"
things or hug a child and spend time reading to them?
