Growing Problems...

I'm reaching out for help from any and all sciences and medical professionals who may be able to help me on my quest to prove that diabetes and obesity are directly linked to the addition of high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) as a replacement for all natural cane sugar in foods and soft drinks.

Consumption of these products has not risen in this span, but the consumption of HFCS due to it's replacing sugars has risen significantly (accounts suggest 1000% between 1970-1990) and that's before the main switch over in soft drinks Pepsi and Coca Cola.

In my recent travels to England and France, I noticed obesity is nowhere near the problem it is here in the United States. People tend to walk a bit more for travel/recreation, but I noticed consumption of fattening drinks (beer included) is about equal. Foods contain real sugar, and not HFCS, which is also alarming.

In a very simple and logistic explanation - HFCS acts as a sludge to the human body, clogging everything inside of you. Meanwhile, sugar tends to create hyperactivity, something which HFCS was hoped to curb. In turn, the United States has become less active, and more overweight - two things considered much more dangerous problems than hyperactivity, which we now long for greatly.

I hope to prove that sugar has no better alternate - and that we may be able to save the United States and it's youth. Of course sugar is still a high link with diabetes - but that's why exercise is still important, and should not be ignored. In proving this, my hope is to overrule PepsiCo and Coca Cola Co. into shifting back to using real sugar, and not a HFCS based sweetener in its place.

Tattoos And The Idiots Who Have Them

More and more in recent weeks, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. I’ve got no problems with people getting tattoos, so long as they actually have some kind of meaning to the person other than “I paid for it” or “it’s on me now so that’s what it means to me” or “it looked awesome”. More and more I see people tattooing the most random things to their body, most people covering their body with the nonsense… and more and more, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. Thank a friend via Twitter recently for showing me a picture of some idiot tattooing stars up and down the side of his face. This began my rant against face tattoos. If you’re in a profession or religion where it’s deemed appropriate, fine… tribal tattoos don’t necessarily cause this reaction for me. I also would never have the balls to call Mike Tyson a fool for tattooing his face. But if you’re just a run-of-the-mill Joe… you shouldn’t be tattooing your face with anything.
