Just in case you missed the new research about diet soda (yes, diet) recently, there’s this. And diet was supposed to be better than regular!
Think about it: liquid sugar by the gallon, all those bubbles to mess with your gastrointestinal tract and environs, bigger and bigger cups – some now look like mini kegs! – and we expected to get away with it?!!!
Think of soda like candy – it is, after all, liquid candy: a little bit, once in a while. Otherwise, just “obey your thirst.”
Or … there’s always beer, wine, liquor!
