How bad is diet soda? Will it interact with supplements?

    Its very likely that the ants simply cannot digest the splenda, which is why its zero calories for humans. If ants are eating a food that is satiating and they cannot digest, they're going to starve to death.
    i know, point was that we dont know the exact mechanism by which they die.

    doesnt that worry u a tiny little bit?

  2. This whole "artifical sweeteners are bad for you" propaganda has gone beyond ridiculous, and Mercola is a tool.

    But anyway, the acid in the sodas can be quite bad for the enamel of your teeth. read this article:

    Coke and Pepsi are amongst the worst, the diet soda's however are not quite as bad.

    why do you think he is a tool?
    i found most of his advice to be very valuable and eye opening.
    most of the info he provides is not even related to the products he offers.

    in the end i dont agree 100% with everything he says, but i think he is as valuable as any other source.

    He does give some very good advice, but he goes a bit overboard sometimes practicing "alarmist science", putting a negative spin on things to cause alarm, when it is not necessary.

    alarmist is a bit too harsh dont you think?

    from his advice i removed all my silver amalgams,
    stopped most sugar and grain products
    stopped having pasterised milk
    avoid splenda, nutrasweet etc
    started using hydrogen peroxide to gargle with instead of blindly following docotors overkill antibiotic scripts.
    started on a probiotic blend

    and im feeling the best ive ever felt.
    and ive seen a marked improvement in my bodybuilding efforts, and im almost 32 now.

    some things require an alrmist approach sometimes no? Genetically modified food for instance...

  7. Admittedly I didnt read through the whole thread once it got to the artificial sweeteners debate, but I did want to point out something that I hadnt seen mentioned because it affected me personally - too many diet drinks wreck my acid reflux. Many people attribute this to the caffeine, but I take in excess amounts of caffeine from other sources and it doesnt bother me - it is actually the carbonation that affects me from the diet drinks.

  8. Yeah, carbonation isn't exactly doing wonders for people.

  9. I will give up my diet soda when you pry my cold, dead, muscular, ripped hand from it.

  10. I dont think its any worse than the air we breath, Im with Crowler.......... try to take it and your DEAD MEAT! Im sure thats what he really wanted to say

    Fine with me, though. The FDA should keep its grubby hands of my Copenhagen!



    Bad man, bad. I drink 2L of Diet Mountain Dew every day, and I can already tell that I am slowly dying. Someday I'll be dead, and then people will be able to say, "Look at TeamSavage. He drank too much diet soda and he DIED! You don't want to die, do you? Avoid artificial sweeteners and you'll live forever!"
    Well of course 2 litters a day is alot lol. Im talking about like one cup of dr pepper, 40oz at the most, every other day.

    if you got ant problems, sprinkle a little bit in the corner. add a drop or two of water on it and wait.
    the ants happily come and carry it all back to their homes where they all get poisoned and die off.
    voila, no more ant problem.[QUOTE]


    While I don't believe there is any documented evidence that artificial sweeteners have ever killed anybody, I do know for a fact that sweetened regular and diet beverages both contain a potentially lethal ingredient that has been documented to cause death when ingested in sufficient qualities.


    Read about the dangers of this potentially harmful and is some cases lethal compound here

    Maybe this is what killed the ants

    As far as i can tell, splenda does not get broken down by the body and around 99% or so pass through unchanged. ITs speculated that whatever does not get excreted is what causes the problems.

    thank god the only decent protein supplier in my town is getting the natural optimum brand. half the one's here are splenda'd.

    Water?

    It is. High amounts of water will disturb your bodies osmotic balance and basically make your cells explode; its not THAT uncommon either.

I mean, they recalled pet food didnt they??? Dont you think they would do something similar with artificial sweetners, which are supposedly deadly?
    The FDA endeavors to regulate ("increase") money flow to Big Pharma and other fake-food manufacturing corporations.

    Sugar is not a poison. People that have problems with sugar are genetically incapable of processing it(diabetics) or they are using way too much (super size me)

    The key is individual tolerance (GTF)
    and controlled moderation.

    The whole sugar is bad campaign started because of shortages due to the fact that sugar trading countries were not friendly toward the US(communists)

    Most sugar substitutes are chemically based on industrial byproducts. (carbon bonds or alcohols structures)
    They invented a problem to make money at it by providing a "solution". If I use anything, it's either "sugar in the raw", honey or stevia.

    High fructose corn syrup, on the other hand, is a problem.

    I concur!! Sugar is not evil but it is not good for you either it messes with your insulin level which can causes fat gain.

    What sort of problem is HFCS? Why would it be a problem while raw sugar and honey are not given they all have a similar carbohydrate make up?

    Vast oversimplification.

    Any carbohydrate consumed in a sufficient quantities can increase insulin levels and lead contribute to fat gain. Additionally, any fat or protein consumed in sufficient quantities will contribute to an increase in body fat. All nutrients can be good or bad depending on how they are consumed.

    Big fan of Urgelt huh?

  24. I havent really read this thread.
    I dont know if im the only one, but when I went through a phase of drinking 2 litres of coke zero a day (best caffeine hit as its basicly caffeine with no calories to fill you up) I would break out in mouth ulcers.

    These days my fridge is stocked with soda water, orange juice and vegetable juice, if I want something fizzy I will drink soda water, if I want something sweet I will drink orange juice.
