Is drinking soda injurious to health?

Now that they say sodas increase your risk of heart problems by 50% , I say its time to ban all of them , after all we did it for the smokers!! My point is that one day things like this WILL happen! The grumblings of it are all ready starting!! You have given them the power to limit personal behavior that hurts no one but yourself (ie smoking. And it WILL lead to FOOD bans and other such health . For the good of the Country everyone should be healthy! THERE IS AND NEVER WAS 1 STUDY that proves second hand smoke hurts anyone!!!

No, soda should not be banned. People need to have a little common sense and only drink it in moderation. I'm sick of this liberal mindset. "We need to ban soda, guns, fast food etc etc." We need to put a ban on stupidity. Everyone knows these things are not good for you if you overindulge. If you overindulge, shame on you. Not McDonald's or Philip Morris, but take the blame yourself.

Are energy drinks such as Rock Star dangerous? (Even the sugar free ones) My husband is 50, type 2 diabetic, and has had 2 massive surgeries in the past few years. Both involved an artery that mad it s way INSIDE of the stomach and then opening up. He now has 3 supplying blood to that region instead of 5. I can t seem to convince him that both soda (diet) and these drinks are horrible for him. I told him that if I find medical evidence to the contrary, then, I will lay off of him.

I am constantly smelling smoke, or what to me smells like second hand smoke. At home, in my car, in the gym, everywhere. I do not smoke and do not live with any smoker. I am 55 yrs old and am very active and healthy. It is so bothersome I have put vicks vapor under my nose or scented cream. The smell can be over powered by other scents. Should I be concerned? My only other recent symptom change is swelling just above my collarbone on both sides. Feels soft and fluid but not painful. Alice

i Had been a casual marijuana smoker for about a month and then i had given up for about 3 weeks but last night i had a minor amount mixed with tobacco, i have a blood and urine test in roughly 4-5 weeks and wondering if it will still be detected and if it is will it be enough to claim as passive smoking? also does drinking more water help flush the THC out of the system?
