If you want a regular soda, what do you have to do to keep a ‘normal’ blood sugar? According to Hannah Gardener, Sc.D., epidemiologist in the Miller School’s Department of Neurology, after taking into account pre-existing vascular conditions, including body mass index, diabetes, high cholesterol and hypertension, they found that individuals who drank diet soft drinks daily were 43% more likely to have suffered a vascular event than those who didn’t drink any.

Given the success of the ban on tobacco advertising on radio and TV in 1971, the federal government must take responsibility for the diabetes epidemic by banning advertisements on food and drink. She likes drinking soda, but doesn’t like the artificial sweeteners that they contain.

“This soda is made with stevia!!!!” she belted out with all the excitement of someone who had found the fountain of youth. “I have finally found a soda I can drink without guilt or shame,” she exclaimed.
