Well, "have to" is always relative, as is "unsafe"...

If that is the purpose of Diet Coke, it's not working worth a damn. After water, Diet Coke is the number one most-consumed beverage of people I know (beer comes in third).

Coke is my favorite. I get disappointed when restaurants don't have it.

I have a question. You folks would probably know better than I.

But, do you think that the chemicals which are added to food could be causing some of the problems?

For example.....a can of green beans contains salt. Fresh ones don't unless you add it. Just wondering? And thanks in advance for any comments. I appreciate it.

Certainly. I don't know specifically about food additives, but chemicals used in our environment currently are considered safe until proven otherwise. That is the hyper-business-friendly/weak regulation atmosphere we have in the U.S. (despite all of the business whining that you hear).

I just was reading about food coloring additives a few weeks ago, and how they could be contributing to kids hyperactivity or autistic like symptoms.
I'll have to read more.
The red dye is the same that they pulled from the food supply when I was a kid, but it's come back, and some kids are ingesting it in massive quantities compared to back in the '70s.

sounds right to me. anything that tries to argue it's point by saying the other point of view is "stupid" is hardly empirical.

nor are pages that look like they were made on geocities back in the 90s, imo.

You know, I actually remember that. Red dyes were pulled because they thought it could cause cancer. (M&M's)

When, my son was around five. He had a glass of red Kool aide. It made him "hyper" to the point that his legs were actually shaking. He was never allowed to have it again. I recognised this as an allergic reaction.

I won't eat "instant" anything. I love potatoes, the real spuds. I don't mind washing, peeling and cooking. I also buy local organic farm products as much as possible.

Thanks to everyone else for the info. I do worry about what is in my food. Growing up. We ate fresh, everything. No TV dinners or processed stuff. My granny was great at making homemade soups and stews. She never fried anything. Boiled or baked. That was it. She even made cinnamon cake from scratch.

If you are going with organic potatoes, leave the peels on! Yummy!

My grandmother fried a lot. But, this was a woman who buttered her doughnuts, made popcorn with Crisco and ate lard sandwiches growing up.

I do, especially if I bake them. Or the red skinned ones for salad.

One thing I read is that there are soda machines in the High Schools? We just had water fountains. If we were thirsty.

I gave up soda several years ago and I'm so glad I did. The most I ever have now is that snack size ginger ale once in a great while and I feel guilty about even that-but it's good for settling your stomach.

Unfortunately I haven't been able to give up coffee
