Pass me a can of liquid diabetes

For years I’ve referred to carbonated beverages as cans or bottles of ‘liquid diabetes’ and I’ve usually managed to avoid drinking them.

High sodium levels in soda pops along with sugars (or worse, aspartame) and coloring additives of uncertain origin are not health-promoting and you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure it out.

Now, in a surreal move, the Corn Refiners Association says that high fructose corn syrup is ‘natural’ and totally innocent of packing on the pounds as it lurks in almost every product our supermarkets hawk. And what genetically modified foods do to trigger our genes, no one is admitting, with corn being the veritable matrix of the world’s DNA.

To hold that these frankesteinian formulae that are being surreptitiously added to our foods won’t hurt us in any way is to place a ludicrously naive amount of faith in a corrupt system bent on profits at all costs so please check out the article by Mike Adams.

And put down that can of soda!

  1. Hi Anne, thank you! So Nandina is your favorite too? Nandina bushes grow all around my house in memory of my Mom (and because Caps love greenery with red berries) and because my Dad planted them years ago. Some have ‘volunteered’ since so i never know just where a new Nandina bush will turn up.

    So glad you got to view one of my Art Slideshows…and you know there’s more on the way for the 2010 Astrology Day Blogathon March 19… Jude

  2. HI Jude

    tried to find comment slot on Secret Moon Art but couldn’t – so here it is as an antidote to ‘liquid diabetes’ with which post, by the way, I totally agree.

    I loved your Art Show – hope lots of stressed-out bloggers click through to be soothed and transported by your beautiful drawings. “Nandina” is my favourite too!

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel are essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
