Entirely my opinion here...-But! This news factoid is seriously wrong and misleading. The problem substance is NOT soda. The problem substance is sugar. Secondly, it has been known for quite a long time that excessive consumption of sugars, are a health problem. And another flimflam I notice that society buys into, is that if it's a "syrup" then it's OK, and somehow not a sugar.  While it's true that it is possible for some syrups to be made entirely of other substances other than sugars....-Within the food industry and food science, most syrups contain sugars to one degree or another. The most common types of food sugars are sucrose, glucose, maltose, dextrose, and fructose. And there are others.  But those are the most common, when dealing with food related sugars. Soda is water (H2O), and sodium bicarbonate, or another -carbonate, to produce the carbonation, or fizz effervescent effect. There are many many soda products sold with no sugars whatsoever! This factoid incriminates soda, rather than stating the true culprit (and the over-consumption lifestyle associated with it).

The problem with your research ....there is NO SUGAR IN SODAS.......NONE.... 100 per cent High fructose corn  syrup sweetens all coca colas. and all other sodas....Research high fructose corn syrup.  This is a CRIME.

It's great for cleaning old coins, especially copper coins.  But that's all it should be used for.
A very interesting video. Did not think diet soda would not have this effect

So, it's not because it's carbonated but because of the amount of sugar in it? How much sugar are there in american sodas anyway?
Jim Wilson (3 years ago)
+hreaper There is NO sugar in american sodas.....it's 100 per cent HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP.....which is WAY WORSE for you .....than sugar. That's the problem...no one KNOWS......they are being given diabetes by the soda companies.

the equivalent of about 9 or 10 teaspoons, but most regular soda contains high fructose corn syrup. (employed by Wisdom Natural Brands, SweetLeaf Stevia)

What else can we expect from a completely artificial man made drink
You Don't Say? (3 years ago)
"Artificial sweeteners may cause cancer" Sure, if you're devouring an obscene amount that nobody in their right mind ever does, and even then the likelihood of developing cancer doesn't increase that much.

Dying of old age is for suckers.
necessaryevil455 (3 years ago)
Can't argue with that logic.
You Don't Say? (3 years ago)
+necessaryevil455  or at least incentives to get fucktard parents to raise their kids right
necessaryevil455 (3 years ago)
You're right we need a Law banning kids from eating foods that are bad for them till they're over 18 year old. 
You Don't Say? (3 years ago)
becoming unhealthy as hell at a young age is for suckers too
