Yes chips and other junk food share the distinction with soda for being MNV (minimal nutritional value) foods. But what truly bothers me about soft drinks are their bone de-mineralizing capacity. Most of these are basically nothing more than malted battery acid.


2 facts:

1) A human tooth kept in overnight in a cola dissolved in 24-25 hours

2) My dad used to travel to europe and had business associates there. At lunches he would drink colas instead of all the people who'd have wine.. They'd tell him.. mr. x u shouldnt be having so much colas..he was like why?

We clean our car parts with it.. its the most amazing de greaser.

Ive read a lot on HFCS.. and the fact that american obesity stems from it.

kollision,

Check out this article

Thanks Nik!

Sounds like a good substitute.

I guess for now I will have to buy Trident gums too. I am going to have to find out which corporation owns it though...Any ethical corporations that you can think of?

Also, since we are on the topic of soft drinks, any Xylitol soft drinks that you know of that is ethical as well?

Thanks for letting me know of this sugar.




EDIT: Wow what luck...Trident is manufactured by Cadbury Adams, a a subsidiary of Cadbury-Schweppes!!

There is no commercially available soft drink marketed in the U.S. containing xylitol, but my guess is that, if it hasn't happened already, it's bound to appear in Japan which has been using stevia for decades now in their sodas. The Japanese are considerably less swayed by the marketing hype behind artificial sweeteners than we are in the U.S.--they've been smart enough to ban their use in marketed foods.

There was a thread started last year in which I (rather painfully) tried to convince people that xylitol was not snake oil. The FDA, operating on behalf of the sugar and artificil sweetener lobbies has done a "great job" of keeping the populace in the dark:
