“Studies show”

by mike ~ May 28, 2008

i was just perusing this article that popped up in my browser’s default page (i guess it’s msn.com here) when i opened it up:


An excerpt:

1. Sodas

Teeth go rotten with Coke. A 12-ounce serving of most sodas contains 7 to 10 or more teaspoons of sugar in the form of high-fructose corn syrup, a sweetener that’s linked to rising rates of obesity and diabetes. (To see what this amount of sugar looks like, check this out.) Diet sodas aren’t much better: they’re filled with aspartame, a questionable artificial sweetener, and studies show that people who drink them weigh more than those who don’t. (emphasis mine)

So, whoever wrote that claims that some “studies show” that people who drink diet sodas weigh more than those who don’t. Really? People who might be dieting might weigh more than people who might not be dieting? Wow, it’s a good thing someone studied that or we’d never know! *facepalm*
