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.
+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.
"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.
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
