Anyone can always find a study somewhere in the literature to justify/rationalize their habit. The fact remains however, that if you *need* a particular substance to feel human and feel like crap if it is withdrawn, then you are a junkie. So other than being a food, water, and air junkie, I think it is healthier to not let any chemical rule your world.
I can't drink coffee because it makes me have seizures. Is it going to make everyone have seizures? No, of course not. Is it safe to say, however that since it makes a vulnerable brain have seizures, it is probably not doing good things to other brains as well? I think so.
And 40 was an arbitrary number I picked out of the air. Would it be better to have a brain tumor at 60? That's when my mom got one. Oh, BTW, she was a big coffee and diet soda drinker. Anecdotal, I know but, as they say, just sayin'.....
Okay here's my bias I've always felt that sugary drinks are for kids. I really can't fathom why an adult would want to drink sweets all day long. I can understand once in a great while, but every day!?
Not offended, just a weird thing to say
Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.
Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine
I can't drink anything out of a can because I'm afraid there's a rat carcass on the bottom.
