This is my own personal cause & for those that don't have one, they may want to think about donating to one of the Sarcoma
Foundations below. My mother passed away from a rare form of cancer called Lipsarcoma. It is one of about 50 subtypes of sarcomas that affect all age groups from the youngest to the oldest. It is a
"a cancer that begins in the muscle, fat, fibrous tissue, blood vessels, or other supporting tissue of the body". There is no cure & funding is low because of its rarity. As some of you may know,
the rarer the form of cancer, the less money that is usually allocated to it by the larger organizations or the NIH (National Health Institute) as well as fewer people donate because they just don't
know about it. This cancer just keeps coming back, grows back where it already was & spreads to other areas as well. You can learn more about it at these links.
Has anyone seen this out in a Burger King? I first saw it recently on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. HOLY CRAP! Can you read what is says? See below.
Coke: Real full-bodies taste with a refreshing bubbly finish
Diet Coke: All the great taste with no calories. Goes down smooth
Sprite: crisp & clear body with a whole lotta character
Dr. Pepper: 23 fruity flavors give it pep
Anyone else think this is craziness????? Soda can clean a toilet & a car engine!!!!! Think what it is doing to your insides!
Now saying that, I have no prob if people want to have 1 or 2 diet sodas in a day - that is their decision to make for themselves. I have my treat cookies & yes, I have a few of my hubby's french fries when he eats them so I am not one that has to eat every little thing clean!
...BUT to put this on a menu board! Plus for those in the know on regular soda - lots & lots of empty calories & the cause for many in terms of weight gain! Both soda & high calorie sugary drinks are one of the main causes of weight gain - yes the overeating too but so many have no clue of the calories in what they are drinking every day!!!
Most people know this but 1 pound = 3500 calories. Most REGULAR sodas have about 110-120 calories per 12 ounce can & LOTS OF SUGAR GRAMS. If you have 2 regular sodas per day at say 115 calories per soda... do the math - 230 calories per day x 30 days in a month is 6900 calories (I did not even count in the months with 31 days)! That is 2 pounds per month and ONLY IF THAT IS ALL YOU ARE DRINKING!!!!!!! Calculate that out year after year after year at 24 pounds+ a year - NOT PRETTY!!!!!!!!! PLUS all those sugar grams too! YIKES!
We are what we eat & drink!
So - really curious - anyone see this anywhere? Your thoughts?
