    Dang it! I only use real sugar (bits amount in my coffee and tea-about a total of 2 of those little packets a day) and never "fake sugar"

    WTF? I thought I was going to be treated to some Archies up in here?

    I've been ripped off.

    A long article, but one that tells us what most of us already know.

    Fat people are more likely to have health problems including heart disease, diabetes and cancers.

    Our consumption of sugar (much of it added into processed foods so we don't even know we're eating sugar) is probably responsible for so many of us becoming lardasses.

    Its soda, folks. If I had to choose one thing that people are killing themsleves with it would be SODA.

    If you look at the American diet the amount of soda that Americans now drink is staggering....nearly a gallon a week on average!

    What was once a special treat (back when I was a kid) is now the fluid of choice for far too many of us.

    Here's a interesting thought...you may be better off in the long run replacing your soda with beer.
