It is the Behavior of Diet Soda Drinkers that is Linked to Metabolic Syndrome

Symptoms: Metabolic Syndrome Is Tied to Diet Soda - New York Times

In his comment on the new findings of this research, Dr Lyn Steffen said "Why is it hapening? Is it some kind of chemical in the diet soda,or something about the behavior of diet soda drinkers?", and I think it is both.

Artificial Sweeteners present in diet soda raises blood sugar the same way. Yet, the more important thing, is the behavior of the diet soda drinkers, since they tend to drink and eat alot of processed foods that basically contain refined grains and their derivatives, and many of those foods admit frying as the main procedure as a processing technique.

I really enjoy reading your blog; it always has great dialogue. I was wondering if your readers have heard anything about online carbon calculators. I am not an environmental nerd but I came across a couple, and with everyone going green these days I thought I would check out my footprint. I took my test at WWF.com, and the EPA site along with www.earthlab.com. Does anyone know about any other ones? Let me know, and it would be cool to hear any thoughts on these things. Oh and I think Earthlab.com is the best site it has the easiest calculator to use and they are doing stuff with the super bowl, spinning football and global warming together is pretty impressive.
