What You Said About Soda Drinking

“Just wanted to make a comment on the soda article- The popular media is big on bashing soft drinks- We all know water is better, but this study did not find the same effect on kidneys (microalbuminuria ) in men or those who drank diet sodas. So there is something fishy about the results. We have a responsibility to tell the whole story- High fructose corn syrup is chemically similar to Sucrose- People are eating too much sugar in the overall diet, but HFCS is just sugar. I don’t know why the study showed the result for women but not men? I believe in moderation in all areas of our lives and diet- so I’m not critical of the moderate soda intake idea.”
