"Things You Wouldn't Know If We Didn't Blog Intermittently."
I thought the letter said "Hog Post".MinnesotaStan, why limit yourself to snack treats? Don't you like Ferraris and Krugerrands?
I couldn't afford the taxes and insurance of a Ferrari - unless the trunk was filled with Krugerrands maybe.
If you have been so foolish as to post your address online, I will send you rubbishy snack treats. Krugerrands in the trunk wreck suspensions I've found.
I myself have received doll house things from a reader: a tiny rat, a tiny bit of cheese, and a tiny guitar in a tiny case that opens and closes. (This was after posting pictures of my dollhouse & explaining my love of doll houses.) Lovely.
Stan, please tell me you don't drink diet pop.
Stan - the aspartame (Nutrasweet) in diet pop is even worse than trans fats for your body - a poison that has been known about for at least 30 years. Trans fats were outed in "Everything You Wanted to Know About Nutrition But Were Afraid to Ask" in 1971. Aspartame wasn't n the market then.Aspartame was linked in the mid-1980s to brain lesions. Later on its use was shown to mimic symptoms of Mutliple Sclerosis - which makes sense, since MS is the destruction of the myelin sheath around nerves - the insulation for the electrical wiring that is nerves.Wiki: "Myelin is a dielectric (electrically insulating) material that forms a layer, the myelin sheath, usually around only the axon of a neuron. It is essential for the proper functioning of the nervous system"Aspartame attacks this, primarily both in the brain and in the spinal cord.ALL the MS victims I know are women. Women are the main consumers of "sugar-free" (health-free) soft drinks. I personally see a pattern, even if the nutritionists and biochemists won't look into it.In fact, I'd be shocked if a good percentage of conditions diagnosed as MS are not aspartame induced - and that many of them are not true MS but simply destruction of the myelin. You would be WAY ahead of the game simply drinking soft drinks with sugar in them. Mexican Coke and the Mexican soft drinks are known for "only" having sugar in them. As bad as sugar is, it is MILES ahead of sugar-free.But, as with tobacco users, it is your choice to slowly attack your body - in this case on the mistaken assumption that sugar is the bad part of soft drinks. Of course, better to avoid soft drinks altogether. I myself don't, but when I do, it is Mexican soft drinks and only once per week or month. A Coke does energize me nicely when nothing else dos as well. But I try to keep it to a minimum.
