I use Splenda and will probably continue to use it no matter if they say its bad for you or not, it has less calories! We actually had a discussion about this at work today because I got a diet soda. I got an email right after saying how bad diet soda is for you and that it can cause cancer and actually make you fatter than regular soda. WTF! If you read evetything thats out there, you will actually see that everything we consume or do is bad for us. There is always something that will give you cancer. Next thing we know they'll be saying "breathing is bad, it'll give you cancer. don't breathe".

 

I do believe that you should take things in moderation, too much of anything can be bad. I try to eat good and not drink a lot of soda, but when you're craving a diet coke, you need a diet coke!! haha

Okay devil's advocate here...as a whole we do put a lot of artificial things in our bodies. Sometimes I wonder if clinical trials are as accurate as corporations would have us believe. Most trials study the short term effects - this person/animal didn't die after 1 year of taking the substance. There just isn't data to say what happens after 30 years because no products would reach the market if there were clinical trial standards like that.

 

I think we all have to make our own choices on this stuff based on what we think we know. Personally I can't stand the stuff, or Equal, or Sweet'n'Low. I think it's poison. Diet soda too, stop fooling yourself and just drink a regular soda - it's all bad so you may as well enjoy a real one. Now, I'm not trying to judge because you could judge me. I have a horrible cheez-it addiction which I am trying desperately to quit, and they are made of all kinds of poisons! (yes guys, I'm still on cheez-its!) But I'm not going to buy the reduced fat cheez-its and sacrifice taste when they are still bad for you either way, if I want to make a difference I'll cut them out alltogether.

 

Now, I could eat all the right things and get hit by a bus and die next month so who cares, or I could eat all the naughty things I like and live 40 more years diseased and unhappy (with my luck I'd live!). I guess you don't know until you know so to each their own and I hope we all live to talk about this in 40 years :P

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
