i don't by it, other studies show different results.

they don't spell out what is a high level of consumption, and most people have more than 1 a day. already talked about how much DT. DEW wife drinks.

FYI. last time we talked about this i quit drinking soda. been a couple weeks now and i've lost noticeable weight. Haven't changed anything else. i changed to a caffein water called AVITAE.

"An Acceptable Daily Intake, or ADI, is set at 40mg per kg of body weight per day. This is equivalent to 2800mg for an average British adult. For an average 3-year-old child the amount is around 600 mg." - From the linked article. And a "Q&A" link found in the margin of the article says the same above, but follows up with "An adult would have to drink about 14 cans of a sugar-free drink every day before reaching the ADI." IIRC, your wife drinks even more than I do. She might actually get close to the upper limit. But I don't think she's across the line.

Also linked in the margins, http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/4970406.stm Something from 2006 refuting the claims made by previous studies linking it to cancer. The sweetener-doubting community has been trying to prove it causes cancer for a long time. And each time they claim to have evidence, it was a tiny sample size and/or poorly controlled study. That's research 101.

The undertone of that article is that people are not consuming the sodas basically because it has a bad public image. Which is true for a lot of misconceptions about health, often attributable to the telephone game, poor studies, and exaggerated studies. While the general public's ignorance frustrates me quite a bit, I can't fault people for wanting to be healthy, and often switching to water as you have. For the record, I'm not calling you ignorant.

So, is this a debate topic with your wife? You wanna show her the BBC article over dinner and a Dt Dew?

We like the berry pomegranate

You consume it? You know it's basically concentrated artificial sweetener, right? The substance we've been postwhoring about for the past 10 posts.

I wish

She has 3-4 drinks a year, and that's not it

My wife doesn't hardly drink at all either; and I wouldn't say I wish it was different. I've known some chicks that were drunks, nothing pretty about it. Me on the other hand... I like me some beer and good tequila.
