DailyDirt: Healthier Sodas Still Aren't That Healthy

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

It’s not easy to introduce a new soda (or pop or whatever you like to call carbonated soft drinks). Just try to find a bottle of New Coke, Crystal Pepsi, OK Soda or 7Up Gold — and those are just the discontinued sodas that had some significant marketing campaigns behind them. The successful introduction of diet sodas has evolved into a trend toward “healthier” sodas with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, real sugar, no BVO, herbal supplements and all sorts of other ingredients that might provide some kind of health benefit. However, some of these healthy sodas are dying off because consumers don’t seem to want sodas that sound too good for you. Here are just a few examples of healthier sodas you might want to try.

Beware of Aspartame

Aspartame is an artificial toxin accidentally discovered by Monsanto researchers that converts to formaldehyde at 86 degrees farenheit in the human body which can’t break it down in digestion and also can’t flush it out. It was discovered to be sweet and so people in high places went out of their way to ensure it was legal to add this to food and drink as an artificial sweetener, reguardless of the fact that it was pickling humans where they stand. Don’t drink it. Don’t eat it. Research it. Spread this news to your friends.

Re: Re: Beware of urban myths

Nothing, that is why you and me should be able to make that determination ourselves.

Obviously you have doubts, but do you have the means to prove it?

Start collecting urine samples to analyze what is that is being metabolized and what is not, what are the bio markers for the toxic substances there? how do you qualify and quantify them over a period of time, how do you control the experiment to account for other sources of the same toxins?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aspartame_controversy

I would start looking for the study papers to see what they did, what they looked for and try to find out how the analysis is done.

If you need help find a hacker biolab near you.

Do some biohacking, your life may well depend on it someday.
