make you want to drink more.

Mind you, when it was first produced in 1894 it did contain cocaine – derived from the coca leaves that were used to flavor the syrup.

It was removed from the recipe in 1903.

274 Coke vs Pepsi

Diet soda itself is not the cause of any major health issues but the low-calorie sweetener aspartame, which many diet sodas contain, has been the subject of much debate.

The U.S. Senate even investigated the claims in a November 1987 hearing.

One study conducted by the Department of Emergency Medicine at Klina General Hospital, Belgium, found that excessive intake of diet soda can result more info

in an increased risk for epileptic seizure. The study suggests that the convulsions related to the beverage are a consequence of high doses of aspartame and caffeine from the diet soda.

In another study conducted at the IWK Children’s Hospital, in Nova Scotia, Canada, the EEGs of children who consumed aspartame showed an increase in spike wave discharge-a type of brain activity that is a possible indication of an area that produce a seizure.

The FDA maintains that the link is nonexistent. Until the controversy is settled, it’s smart to drink diet soda in moderation.

Deep Breath, Count Ten

How many times have you heard that said, if you or someone around you is about to burst a blood vessel, and lose control of their temper, or if they can feel the stress levels rising up?

There’s a lot of truth in it actually.

You see, when you’re under stress, your breathing is shallow. If you breath deeply it tells your mind and body that it’s OK and you can calm down. Your brain gets more oxygen, your heart rate drops, your muscles relax.

Try it now if you like. Sit up straight, Breath out through your mouth. Breath in through your nose, with your mouth closed. Hold your breath and count six. Exhale through your open mouth. Repeat three or four times.
