diabetes,
but new evidence suggests we should think twice about using it to

soft drinks.

Chi-Tang Ho at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey, and
his
colleagues found that adding the syrup to fizzy drinks makes them up
to 10
times richer in harmful carbonyl compounds - elevated in people with
diabetes and blamed for causing diabetic complications such as foot

is
well documented," says Ho, whose team found carbonyl compounds in 11
popular brands of soft drink sweetened with the syrup.

Technically, this is not spam; he's not selling anything. And it's
not too late for you; there is considerable evidence that a change in
life-style and food habits can ameliorate the condition.

Not selling anything? I believe it said at the bottom of the message that
we had to pay a fee to read the rest of the article. Looks like selling to
me.

Duh! You obviously haven't been in this newsgroup for very long and know
