Now this is no good news for Soft-Drink drinkers. Especially those of us (which includes me) whom consume probably more than our fair share.

Mind you, I guess we always knew that soft drinks weren't the healthiest of options. But still, the new 'findings' are even more worrying.

Caution: Soft Some Drinks May Seriously Damage Your Health (The Independent; Sunday 27th May 2007)

Time to find a new mixer...

argh fuck.

I'm going to be drinking a lot of tea aren't I?

Funny how it mentions Pepsi but not Coke? Could it be I am safe?

My dentist is going to LOVE this. b*stard.

I'm suddenly glad I mostly drink biological fruit juice and Evian :)

I will be sticking to beer!
I drink about half a dozen "soft drinks" a year in any case though I suppose I had better read the lables on tonic water which is the only fizzy thing I drink in any quantity, (note to self, in the interests of my health, increase the proportion of gin).

If I'm going to get Cirrhosis of the liver I may as well enjoy the process!

That so isn't a new story! I saw something about that years ago. I look forward to seeing Private Eye point out where they nicked their 'exclusive' from in a couple of weeks time.

This is what I've always said!! I hardly touch soft drinks, they are nasty nasty poisons that rot your guts. Especially colas and diet varieties. Eeeevilll!! Flush thems!!! Rosie's Diet Coke obsession scares me.

Oh, that's just great! The one indulgence left to me after I had to chuck everything else that's fun because of the diabetes and now that's doing me in too. In the same week no less that a report comes out saying that the main drug keeping the diabetes from killing me will probably cause me to die from a heart attack.

No, it's clear that everything is out to get me. Perhaps it's finally time to just give in and go down in a hail of sugary foods. Literally, Death by Chocolate.

The next danger will read something like this.

Living is the cause of Death - How being alive is the worst thing for you.

E211 is in a lot more things than just soft drinks. Check your labels. It is one of the most common preservatives.

Everything kills you these days.

So far, I have yet to die.
