Insects love rotting meat and fecal matter. You going to start eating those because they do?

You said insects don't bother with artificially sweetened drinks so neither will you. I pointed out that insects enjoy rotting meat and fecal matter so will you then enjoy those?

I was simply pointing out that what an insect is attracted to or repelled by really does not matter as far as what is good or bad for humans.

Of course you were.



Your 'question' was so preposterous I didn't know how to take it.

It was preposterous to make my point that you staying away from something because insects stay away from it really makes no sense either.

Hostility?

Something wrong?

Not sure where you saw any hostility there Wart. None was intended and upon multiple readings of my posts I fail to see where there is any at all.

This article is worth a read, true or false, I don't know.



Aspartame, Nutrasweet - the danger of consumption
Hi Attie,
Why are you drinking it in quantities?
What is wrong with plain, simple unadulterated tap water? If you have doubts about the quality of the tap water whcih you recieve in your area/county or country you should contact your local Environmental Health organisation or Trading Standards department which should be listed in the local phone book.

As a resident you should be entitled to demand that a water quality survey is carried out in your area - just think the Erin Bockovitch case! Following this, you should know whether the Department of Health or Trading Standards or Environmental Health Department advises using tap or bottled water at all times or at any particular time.

Diet soda is a refreshment drink - look at the label to see the chemicals used in it`s creation. It is not a liquid used by any chef when cooking . Again, get your local tap water assessed by Environmental Health to check it`s vialbility for use in cooking and drinking.

As for making coffee with diet soda - NO, NO,NO,NO!

Coffee, freshly ground and with the very lightest pinch of salt (to bring out the flavour) should be made with boiled (still)water and not carbonated in any form or shape! The chemicals employed in a making a diet soda and listed on the bottle should advise one not to use a diet soda to make a decent pot of coffee!

As for any soda, orange coloured or flavoured - try to avoid it all, all costs and cut it out of one`s diet. It cannot be good for you - the chemicals - just look on the list- cannot be good for you.

Finally, as far as I`m aware "tinnitus" has nothing to do with diet but is a consequence or noise or vibration in one`s place of work. You may have a claim against a previous employer if they failed to provide you with appropriate guards against "tinnitus" - only you can decide and demonstrate a case. What do you think was the cause of your "tinnitus"?

Although the diet soda has much more less sugar than the original one, but its still contains sugar as well.

Well, you're better to reduce the amount of diet soda and this for your own health matter.
