I'm Lov'in Me Some Pop
I’m lov’in me some pop.
I knew a man who was an addict... Robert was addicted to pop. (that’s soda for those of you from the east coast) In particular, he was addicted to Mountain Dew. As a matter of fact, that was all Robert drank. His average daily intake was a case of Dew.
One day, Robert’s wife was fed up with his Dew addition and made him stop. Yes sir, she made him stop drinking all that Dew - COLD TURKEY. The next day he woke up frozen. During the night he had seized up and was unable to move. His wife called the doctor, who came out to the house.
The doctor evaluated Robert. He reviewed the details of the cold turkey intervention. He then gave his recommendation, which I’m sure the Mountain Dew advertising department would have liked. His verbal prescription was, "give that man a Dew”.
His wife helped him drink a Dew. Then, like a miracle shined down from above, he got out of bed, got dressed, and went to work. I’d love to see that on one of the Super Bowl ads.
Now, even though Robert’s entire system ran on sugar and caffeine, I wouldn’t recommend that to most people. Man does not live on bread alone, and man was not designed to take in copious quantities of sugar. Your body will rebel in the form of: heart disease, high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, high triglycerides, and like my mother says, “the diabetes”.
The medical research goes on further to say that diet pop does not reduce or eliminate those risks. As a matter of fact, the consumption of diet pop causes these diseases at a rate equal to or greater than regular pop.
Just like I don’t understand how Robert’s system ran on Dew, I don’t understand how diet pop can cause diabetes, but it does. By the way, I saw Robert years later, and the Dew did catch up with him.
Stay alive, be healthy and try to drink some water.
