PS saccharine is not banned at this point in time. I can still buy (or did last year) diet tonic water using saccharine. It is less harmful to me than aspartame or splenda.

Yeah...it's true that there's no nutritional value or any health value to drinking soda...but it's just one of those things that the current world has embraced. There's a minimal value to eating cookies (gluten-free or not), cakes, etc., but we eat them just because they're...well, typical of our society and because we have come to like the taste.

If you eliminate soda, that's all the better--but remember that there are plenty of things that aren't good for us...and artificial sweeteners may cause cancer, but excessive fat may cause high blood pressure and heart attack and stuff, and excessive cholesterol is dangerous, as well... everything in moderation. I don't think an OCCASIONAL soda is going to be terribly detrimental to your health, but it's all about moderation.

EXACTLY!! Too much of anything will be detrimental. As my biology teacher used to say, " Everything in moderation, NOTHING in excess"

I agree

Personally, I think that the typical north american diet is causing a lot of the devastating diseases that we see today like cancer, heart disease, diabetes, ect. People don't eat things in moderation and don't eat right, which results in health problems. I mean humans aren't suppossed to live on hamburgers, pizza, and battered food covered in grease... and that's what a lot of people do, I know a few ;) One or two of these foods a week would probably be ok, but not every day!

i hated biology

:o I'm the complete opposite! I loved it so much I majored in it :lol:

Well it wasn't the class, it was the teacher. I had him during the period that was extra long (two hours). He gave us lectures the entire class. But biology is an interesting subject.

Oh that is quite understandable, I dislike it when teachers make classes boring.

Since I am majoring in dietetics I have alot of that to study too.

Lucky you! I think you are going to love that job! After being diagnosed, I sometimes wish that I had of went that route in my undergrad. Nutrition and diet are just so interesting! I'm actually considering applying to do a PhD in a nutrition related field after I finish my masters. I'm just not sure if I can handle another 3 years of school!
