Sadly, many American children have no idea of what real vegetables look like. Isn’t this alarming? Now it’s time to learn and reject what US beverage industry is trying to convince Americans about: that grape is a simple chemical cocktail of artificial colorants Red 40, Blue 1, synthetic flavor methyl anthranilate, sodium or potassium benzoate and a lot of sugar. The only tiny difference between Sunkist Grape and Grapette is the artificial dye content. Why bother naming them differently? The both are slow-action chemical terrorism threats.
DyeDiet Doesn’t Buy It!
Chemical terrorism threat. Obviously, the diagram is more than a half-red. This means that you waste your money, health and time by taking high chemical risk of DDFI = 26/8 ~ 3.2 and receiving essentially no nutritional compensation: DDNF = 8/36 = 0.2.
Unfortunately CIA failed to recognize sugary sodas as a chemical terrorism threat for the American people. Research has clearly shown that drinking sugary drinks is linked to type 2 diabetes. According to the American Diabetes Association 25.8 million children and adults in the United States (8.3% of the population) have diabetes and another 79 million (25%) have pre-diabetes. See the disturbing stat maps Maps of Diagnosed Diabetes and Obesity in 1994, 2000, and 2010 and Maps of Trends in Diagnosed Diabetes and Obesity. In the year of 2000 diabetes contributed to 213,062 deaths and in 2007 diabetes was listed as underlying cause of 231,404 deaths of Americans and was found as a leading cause of blindness, kidney failure and non-traumatic lower-limb amputations. These numbers are hundreds times the combined death toll from all the terrorist attacks, domestic and abroad, ever committed against Americans. Most of the sodas in America are sugary chemical pollutions that pose real continuous threat to the US national security.
Sexual maturation and impotence threat. Children are the most vulnerable part of the population. And this is not only about obesity, diabetes and heart problems. A study reported the other day that testosterone levels were found alarmingly low in obese teenage boys. Do you know what this means? Low testosterone can slow or stop sexual maturation — and there’s nothing more hurtful than “a male not having his maleness.”
CSPI escalates its campaign to reduce the consumption of soda and other sugary drinks with “The Real Bears,” an animated short film exposing the drinks’ unhappy health consequences.: THE UNHAPPY TRUTH ABOUT SODA “I like the taste of soda and I’ve had my share and I don’t imagine a world without soda,” Bogusky said. “But the reality is that over the years sugary drinks have gone from an occasional treat to an everyday, every-occasion beverage. This project attempts to contrast the marketing hype around soda with the stark reality and it is my hope that it makes some small contribution to a critical cultural awakening. We need to begin to connect the dots between what we are sold, what we eat, and how sick we have become,” said Bogusky.
Here is a public comment from a reader: “I am a 61 yr old female. A few yrs ago I started to experience slight incontinence. Very upsetting. A few months later for financial reasons I stopped drinking the 2-3 cans of diet soda I had every day. In about a month – the incontinence STOPPED! Recently I went nuts and drank a lot of diet soda in one weekend. Guess what came back? It’s gone now – I’m drinking water and coffee and nothing else.” So not only sugar; chemical sugar replacements do not do any good for you in the long run.
Bottom line. By rejecting Grapette and other sugary sodas not only you will improve your own health, your family health, cut your medical bills and lower the risks of infertility, sexual problems and premature death, but you will also notably contribute into the stronger foundation of the American national security! And that is what real patriots should do. You may choose to drink diluted Welch’s 100% Grape Juice or, even better, purified water for $1.11 for 3 gallons. Hydrate Yourself Straight!
