At least we'll all have affordable health care now, as we guzzle our way to type II diabetes.

"propaganda"? "freedom haters"? Because you can't stand to hear the truth about something that's unhealthy? A subset of this country is going from pathetic to psychotic.

I drink fewer than a dozen sodas per year. I agree with health experts that say they are bad for you, but "There's no redeeming feature?" Excuse me? If people enjoy the taste, the fizz, the refreshment, whatever it might be, that's a redeeming feature. We don't need nanny state protection. If someone wants to make life a longevity contest, that's their prerogative, but they needn't impose those values on others.

"Excuse me? If people enjoy the taste, the fizz, the refreshment, whatever it might be, that's a redeeming feature."---I don't think you understand Steve, they mean redeeming to them. These crusades are not about public health, they are about how they make the crusaders feel.

It's just information, people. Education helps us make informed decisions. And maybe it will help some parents learn about nutrition. Travel the world...the fattest people around are Americans.

It definitely opened my eyes. Twenty six pounds a year? I believe it. I'm going back to my once a week pop. I agree that people should have the freedom to kill themselves, get sick, and get huge, but I am glad that there are articles like this to tell of what might happen with too much indulgence.
