      perfect... now you understand.

      here's my reasoning... soda is bad for you... coffee is bad for you... fatty foods are bad for you... alcohol is bad for you... women are bad for you... shit, i even bet cigerettes are bad for you.

      who the f*ck cares?!? i'm going to die someday... i don't want to have lived my life through a health book.

      be careful about reading health books. you may die of a misprint.[/b]

      Well ya don't have to worry about it.. but I guess if you eat less sugar in general (which really isn't hard to do), you'll have a longer life to not worry about it.

      Heroin CAN cause death. Ciggarettes CAN cause cancer. Sniffing paint CAN cause brain damage. Of course none of it's garunteed to happen.

      Hey, all I did was post some information. Im not telling you what to do with it. That choice is yours. Most people don't realize how many of the things that bother them in life are caused by sugar, and I thought I'd share that information with you.

      Wow, I can't believe that people on this forum split half-and-half over pot, but you mention sugar and the monkies on their backs start up a-hootin and a-poo-flingin in total accord.

      I have a massive sweet-tooth myself, but because my diet is mostly organic and whole foods, I get almost no refined sugars these days. I eat tons of sweets, but they're made with natural sugar sources and/or evaporated cane juice, and other unprocessed ingredients. They taste 100x better than the High-Fructose-Corn-Syrup Delivery Devices in the grocery store. A few months ago I would still sometimes buy a sack of Keebler cookies or something, and they were almost sickening when I was no longer habituated to artificial crap-food laced with liquid crack(HFCS). IMO, junkfood manufacturers should be held to the same standards as the cigarette companies. Their product is equally addictive, more aggressively marketed toward children, and at least as destructive of public health. Also, it encourages an agricultural system that reduces our food choices, destroys local economies, and steadily erodes our quality of life, making us more dependent on corporate monoculture.

      /end of rant.
      If you have a sense of caring for others, you will manifest a kind of inner strength in spite of your own difficulties and problems. With this strength, your own problems will seem less significant and bothersome to you. By going beyond your own problems and taking care of others, you gain inner strength, self-confidence, courage, and a greater sense of calm.Dalai Lama

      Yeah....what he said. But carefull...I try sharing information and these sugar addcits get upset. I myself ahve been addicted to sugar since I was little and am having a hard time trying to break this addiction. I've never had a moment in my life where I've felt satisfied from sugar. It's like cocaine. It just leaves you wanting more. And though it's destruction is slower, its acceptance makes it quite dangerous. "Oh its just sugar" then 40 years later theyre suffereing from health problems that could have been prevented. Or even younger people are getting diabetes. Its poison. But hey, whatever yuo do, enjoy it. THe stress will kill you before anything.

      gameover, shut up. Just... shut up.

      I like sugar-- and, hey, we all gotta die someday, right?
      Plus I have an addicition to caffine, so sugar is the least of my worries.

      So as long as we're gonna die someday we might as well not give a shit about our health? And like I said, do what you want with the information. Its up to you, but I'm not gonna shut up. No ones making you lsiten.
