yes, we have heard about it for years...are we listening?
why hasn't more research been done on it?

Soda pop is big business, and business dollars fund a lot of the research that is done. Think about how long it took to show the link between cigarette smoking and cancer and how even after the research was irrefutable, cigarette companies were still promoting their products as healthful. And that was about a product that there was a direct correlation between use and death. Until research is funded by institutions that have no vested interest in the outcome, not a lot of progress will probably be made.
Great! Now you're promoting Fox News links?
Yes, people know the effects of soda and sugar. Giving them a reason to give a damn about it is another story altogether.
You cannot MAKE people listen.
People smoke and use drugs and all kinds of things that ruin their health.
But those things are known.
Soda Pop is an insideous toxic substance and the victims are often children with ignorant parents.
And it doesn't matter if it comes from Fox or any other source. Who are these people to tell you where to get your news? MSNBC, Yahoo, ABC, CBS, NBC? Some of those stations have such a liberal agenda it makes Foxes conservative agenda look tame.
Reality is Soda Pop is toxic, and most people do not know why. Most Soda Pop contains Sodium Benzonate and Ascrobic Acid (Vitamin C), when these two substances combine in the body they form Benzene. Benzene is PROVEN to cause cancer.
And that is just one of many concerns.
So thank you to bringing this to light. If idiots want to ignore the science I"m fine with that, it's their bodies to destroy. But endangering children because of ignorance is an entirely different issue. And corporations who know these substances are toxic are only concerned about Profit so they will never police themselves. Sad sick world in which we live. Humans will one day destroy the planet.
I think people have a pretty good idea what empty sugar calories do. They just go for the pleasure of the taste. Not that I think soda is literally toxic in small doses. I have kids size can of soda every few days and my health check up a few weeks ago showed I was in good shape.

Great question. We tax alcohol and cigarettes because of the health hazard. Why not tax something that contributes to obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart attacks and other diseases? And forces up the health insurance rates on the rest of us who stay...

There are a number of organized groups with vehement leadership who want to subdue those who want to boost their immune systems with natural methods. They use circular reasoning and illogic. They do not connect the mind/body system. My recent hub warns against these ultra negative persons. See...
