Drink Filter Tap Water Not Soda
By Joan McDaniel July 12, 1916
Where Have I been? Good Question I’ll answer by saying in the Garden. I have planted, harvest and seem a little pre-occupied with working unwanted extra hours at work. I am also feeding and watching some very hungry birds and squirrels. The connection to wild life is a welcomed break and I love being out there with them all around me. Much peace and quiet, well birds aren’t exactly very quiet but nice to listen to even when they are yelling (singing) for food.
I do keep up with the news and today I got an article from Dr. Mercola concerning a topic I have had something to talk about. I am now far from the world of Big Junk Food but have published articles before on the dangers of Drinking Soda especially Energy Drinks and an old Video from the Health Ranger “Soda Pop Sugar Shocker Demo!
I have also researched and written about the value of filtered tap water in “Water – Bottled or Tap?”
Junk Food Getting Some Attention
If there is one thing Big Food likes is Press but Is the Junk Food World getting more attention than it wants? The soda drinking public has been going though some growing pains.
I’m sure Main Stream Media is too busy to tell us anything about it for they like most of the important big headline folks care more about the bottom line then about you or your health. Junk food bottom line is much more important then what their products are doing to your body.
No, these headlines are coming from the alternate news world with some local news press.
Pepsi’s new Diet Cola
First It seems that Pepsi’s attempts to address the growing health concerns over it use of aspartame in their Diet Cola introduced a new “Diet Cola”. It didn’t take long but that new product was a complete failure (major revenue loss) and they have had to return to the drawing board and use aspartame again. To protect the bottom line.
An article from last year from Business Insiders Hayley Peterson wrote “People hate the new Diet Pepsi
Recently the LA Times AP wrote “Pepsi to use aspartame again, despite health concerns”
Junk Food and Big Government
New York’s Mayor Bloomberg started a fad when he attempted to tax soda, for many cities in the U.S. are considering it as a great revenue source with the motivation of “children’s health” and Mexico has already implemented its own soda tax. So has big soda turn to government for help? Even The World Health Organization (WHO) is looking at the sugar content in soda.
Has Junk food been found to have its hands in the cookie jar? Today, Dr. Mercola’s article quotes an article from the not so conservative Huffington Post entitled “CDC Official Exits Agency After Coca-Cola Connections Come to Light”
Dr. Mercola’s article has a great video Entitled “6 Reasons Why You Should Stop Drinking Soda” which I am including. Read the rest of his article entitled “CDC Executive Resigns After Being Caught Colluding With Coca-Cola to Salvage the Soda Market”.
