Well I received an email from a Christine Seivers about my diet soda post...she sent me a link, actually here is the email she sent me.  I have gone to the link and I think it offers up some great information.  I will say that I have really slowed down my diet soda drinking.  Not that I did drink that much anyway, but I am counting calories so I am slowing down on a lot of the "other" drinks, trying to stay more with water and tea.  I don't put sugar in my tea.  I actually had a funny conversation with a friend of mine about water and tea.  He said drinking tea sugarless is not considered very good for you, he said it makes you go pee a lot.......Hmm......not sure why his dr told him that, I drink water and make many trips to the bathroom, but I have always drank iced tea and it has never made me go as often as water does.  LOL  Anyway please read the site below.  I think the Unsettling Facts really do sound legite, and we all can make up our own minds, but I think if you are going to decide to do something or not do something, you SHOULD know the facts, or what the studies do say.  I am glad Christine sent me this site, and I will certainly continue to drink less soda period.  Diet or not......I am slowing down......I read this but had already decided to slow down and hopefully stop altogether.  I don't consider myself addicted at all.....I am proud of myself for slowing down.  I even had my son drinking diet soda......which reading this makes me wonder why I didn't do my own research before deciding to allow my son to drink it.  So he doesn't now.  


My name is Christine, and I'm writing in regards to your site. I'm currently working with, and we recently published an article entitled "10 Unsettling Facts about Diet Soda". You can review the article here:

Well, I couldn't read the article because it keeps telling me "file not found" but do a search on "aspartame studies" and you will be amazed at how terrible that stuff is for you. We don't even chew gum anymore because of it. It's in all gum now even sugar gum...they just started adding it to all gum in the last year. I avoid anything sugar free like the plague.

I fixed the link, hopefully, I did check it and it took me to the correct site.

Good for you - eliminate it entirely if you can. Using Equal (Nutrasweet) in my tea for a few weeks caused me to lose almost my entire short term memory. I had no idea what had happened but decided to remove "new" things. A few days after stopping Equal, my memory returned. Scared me!

Anyhoo....I'm a new follower and brand new crocheter.
