I Told You So: Splenda

I am not often right but when I am watch out. For years people have been telling me that pink sweeteners (which I love) like Sweet n Low cause cancer and that Diet Coke (which is my crack) is bad because of the sweetener they use. These same people praise Splenda as a better alternative. I told them to just wait because someone would come out with a study eventually that proved Splenda to be harmful and it happened.
A new Duke University study finds that the artificial sweetener Splenda contributes to obesity, destroys beneficial intestinal bacteria and may interfere with absorption of prescription drugs.

I am sure people will fire back with other studies and the debate will go on for a long time, but for now I told you so.

Been Awhile

So it has been a while since I posted anything here. I know that you probably don't want to here it, but I have been really busy. I went back to school to finish my master's degree. I forgot how much work it is and I am only taking two classes. We also found out that we are going to have another child in April. I can't wait for that, I don't know if I want it to be a boy or a girl, I guess that is why God picks the gender for us. Anyway, I hope to be posting more often, when I have something to say here are some quick thoughts on what I wanted to post in the last month but never did.

1. I love Sarah Palin - I love that John Mccain picked here as his running mate.

2. Stuff about Fantasy Football - That will probably be discussed on my sports blog.

3. I can't believe that the Media is giving Barack Obama a free pass and sticking to Mccain/Palin.

4. I followed Lost at ComicCon a lot this year and can't wait for the new season, I have been listening several lost podcast to keep up on the lastest news.

5. I am enjoying the new show Fringe by Lost creator J.J. Abrams.

I know there is more, but I can't think of it, anyway I have lot to say and now to time to write it down, but I hope to be doing more blogging in the future. I know, I hate when people say that too.

Worlds Best Sports Blog

I started a new blog with my buddy Lucus called the Worlds Best Sports Blog. Of course this is tongue in cheek. We love the Office and we always laugh at how Michael bought himself the Worlds Best Boss mug at Spencers, so the name is in that same vain. Check it out if you like sports.
