pranavk, thank you for your roundup of housewives' tales.

There are TV programmes and places on the net where they test out such ideas.

For example, you can leave a tooth in Coca Cola for weeks and disappointingly it does not dissolve.

One lesson I learned from an Indian friend however, is that warm water is best.

Sometimes such articles are paid by people against something. If softdrinks are indeed bad for the health, then why do such people who are said to be in their 80s and 90s still alive and kicking?

Hence speaking drinking softdrinks is okay IF in moderation like 2 times a week or whatever your habit is, just don't 'overdrink' it.

I mean, come on people, just be realistic, just because such a negative article like this keeps popping out, we know we appreciate the information for us to be cautious but being too paranoid won't do you good either.

I'm just saying.

The article states it is people who drink every day. The fact that there are people alive who drink soft drinks in their 80s and 90s is irrelevant. There are people in their 90s who have been smoking for 70 years, but it does not make smoking safe.

Drinking a soft drink every day increases your chance of getting prostrate cancer. I think that is a very simple message.

Quite frankly, if you are an adult and you need to drink children's drinks every day, there is more to worry about than cancer. I would worry that you are a grown up but behaving like an infant. A bit like those adults who wear ridiculous shorts that just cover the knee. You look like 5 years old!!

Lt. Col. Frank Slade said it best: "Sugar is s^*t ..." To really gauge the dangers of sugar, visit the food court in any American shopping mall. Or go to a WalMart and check out the people who buy sugared soft drinks a case at a time.
