you said that this shit breaks down mitochondrea? i could be wrong on this, but when a cell lives after its mitochondrea die, thats how cancer forms, since the cell wont die unless the mitochondrea give it the go ahead. so if we drink soft drinks, we are all screwed.
lmao!! Hey I seriously have a problem with Diet Coke. I drink a case of 18 or 20 EVERY day. I am addicted and if I don’t have it, watch out, here comes bitchnessville! I swear they put real “coke” in it. Anyhow, I am glad to hear I am not the only one with this problem. I am just glad it’s pop I am addicted to and not drugs, alcohol etc…
james… too funny, but here are the actual facts.
“Weak organic acid stress inhibits aromatic amino acid uptake by yeast…” Bauer et al. 2003
that’s the actual paper that is supposed to prove the thing about sodium benzoate. It actually mutates DNA in yeast… not humans (that was not proven) unfortunatly there was some sensationalizm in the media. Fact is, the Sodium Benzoate is used to kill mould (aka yeast) so no wonder it screws with DNA.
PS: it’s miTOchondria
You are hilarious, but I am here to say… YES! I love you science! I’m allergic to that friggin sodium benzoate – gives me asthma – and haven’t had a coke in years! With any luck they will ban the crap and I might be able to drink a soda again. But, then of course I will have to move to Canada for the whole gravity thing, because I don’t like aspartame.
Brew tea man! Throw 10 tea bags in a huge bowl, fill it with water, nuke it for 15 minutes, throw 20 tons of sugar in it, stir it, throw twice as much water on top of that, stir it, and you are good for two days. Go for it!! It’ll even taste better cause there’s not as much gravity up there to weigh it down. Go for it!!
If you lived on the moon, it would be easy to get out of bed.
Where should I go if I want to put on weight, where is gravity stronger, on a bigger planet perhaps?
I can’t read the link to globeandmail without purchasing the article James.
