Keep Drinking Your Soda Friends

If I hear one more news station report about the study linking soda to heart issues I am going to puke.
(CBS News) BOSTON People who drank more than one diet soda each day developed the same risks for heart disease as those who downed sugary regular soda, suggests a large but inconclusive study.
It is interesting that in the lead of the online article the word inconclusive comes up, but during the TV broadcasts the news anchors are reporting this like some kind of matter-of-fact study.

What really annoys me is that they spend a majority of the report discussing how diet and regular soda seem to have the same link to heart problems, all the while ignoring the obvious fact that most people are eating a Big Mac and large Fry while sucking down their soda of choice.

I know I went to public school but I kind of wonder what is harming the heart more in this meal - the soda or the 100's of calories and fat grams consumed while chewing?

Here's to drinking soda - regular or diet - Cheers!
