EMMET RUSHE’S FITNESS COLUMN: IS DIET COKE BAD FOR YOU?

first_imgBY EMMET RUSHE: There are many things in health and fitness that cause a reaction.It could be the low carb debate, eating before bedtime, eating after 6pm, should you eat breakfast, should you eat carbs at breakfast, will fruit make you fat etc.All these topics usually get a huge reaction and will have people debating back and forth when one of the topics comes up. However, I have never seen something that causes so many people to react as the topic of diet coke/diet drinks and the artificial sweetener aspartame that is added to it.The biggest thing that struck me about the reactions to it is the scathing anger that people seem to have for a diet drinks containing aspartame.Comments about the dangers of it, the chemicals that are in it, the company that supply it and that someone in the fitness and health industry would ‘endorse’ it.The public’s reaction against aspartame seems to be fuelled by shared posts and memes on Facebook. The backlash against aspartame caused Pepsi to remove aspartame from Diet Pepsi (in the US), and replacing it with another artificial sweetener, sucralose.You could be forgiven for thinking that, if Pepsi are removing it from their drinks, there must be some pretty damning evidence behind their decision.Sadly, no.Pepsi have admitted that their decision is a ‘response to consumer preferences’, and cite aspartame as the reason.So what are the actual facts when it comes to aspartame and diet drinks in general?Are they bad for our health? Do they affect our brains??Do they cause headaches?Do they cause weight gain?There’s no shortage of material when it comes to aspartame research.There are more than 500 studies on it. Even if we cast a suspicious eye, and exclude studies funded by soft drinks manufacturers and the like, there are still hundreds of studies that have been carried out on aspartame.You would need to drink 32 cans of diet drinks daily to exceed the recommended daily limits for aspartame.When aspartame is ingested our body breaks down aspartame into three different components: one of these is methanol.The idea that aspartame is broken down into methanol, a product that is toxic is initially an alarming one, but we need more details first.Firstly, not all of the aspartame in a soft drink will be converted into methanol.Only about 10%, which translates to around 55 milligrams of methanol produced per litre of fizzy drink. 55 milligrams isn’t a lot, but any amount of methanol is bad, right?Not so.Aspartame isn’t the only thing in your diet that contributes to your methanol intake.There are many substances you might not initially expect contain methanol in small amounts.Aspartame is a pretty small contributor to our daily methanol exposure compared to other food sources.Diet drinks – 55mg/LRed wine – 99-271mg/LTomato Juice – 218mg/LThe other factor that people mention when it comes to aspartame and methanol is that methanol is also metabolised into formaldehyde, which is excreted in the urine, and that high levels of these chemicals have been shown to have no negative health effects.Again this is dose dependant and much higher levels of these chemicals in other food sources, than is produced by aspartame have been shown to have no negative health effects.Phenylalanine intake can pose risks, but only for those suffering from phenylketonuria.Phenylketonuria is a rare genetic condition that affects only 1 in every 10,000 people.People with this condition are unable to break down the amino acid phenylalanine, and as a result it can build up in their bodies to toxic levels.Obviously, for sufferers, aspartame-containing drinks pose a very real risk, as high levels can lead to brain damage, which is why any beverage containing aspartame must be clearly labelled as such.However, it must be emphasised that for the normal population, this isn’t a concern, as they can break down phenylalanine well before it reaches these levels.Cancer is often a worry with food additives.Aspartame has been studied for decades concerning whether or not it can have carcinogenic effects, and the vast majority of studies have found no link.In the mid-2000s, an Italian institute did claim to have provided evidence linking aspartame with cancers. However, the methods of these studies were criticised for a number of reasons and it’s now widely accepted that the data they collected on aspartame and cancer is highly unreliable, and has not been replicated.A lot of people claim that aspartame-containing drinks give them headaches.There are studies that are for and against the claims behind this and there is no conclusive evidence either way, all I can say on this point is that, if you get headaches when you drink a diet drink, don’t drink them.Does diet drinks prevent fat loss?There is no evidence that diet soda inhibits fat loss, or that it even spikes insulin levels to levels that would be detrimental to health.In summaryThere are no studies that indicate any long-term health risks from drinking diet drinks.Diet drinks are not harmful to health, well-being, or body compositionThere is currently no good evidence that diet drinks are bad for you (i.e. causes weight gain or health complications).#TrainSmartFor more information, contact me through the link below.https://www.facebook.com/pages/Rushe-Fitness/120518884715118?ref=hl * Emmet is the owner and operator of Rushe FitnessEMMET RUSHE’S FITNESS COLUMN: IS DIET COKE BAD FOR YOU? was last modified: November 23rd, 2015 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Bad for youCoca Coladiet cokeemmet rushelast_img read more

Di Matteo ‘interested in Aston Villa job’

first_imgRoberto Di Matteo is interested in taking over at Aston Villa – and will quit Chelsea if he is only offered a one-year deal as manager at Stamford Bridge, according to The Sun.Villa are looking for a manager after recently sacking Alex McLeish, and former West Brom boss Di Matteo still owns a house in the Midlands.It is claimed he is troubled by suggestions he may be asked to take on the Blues job for next season to see how he fares– and would refuse such an offer.Apparently interested in the Aston Villa hotseat.There has been speculation that owner Roman Abramovich is looking to make a short-term appointment until he can persuade Pep Guardiola to take charge.It was recently reported that former England boss Fabio Capello would be prepared to take over on the understanding that Guardiola may succeed him in the next year or two.Meanwhile, the Daily Mail say Chelsea are to offer new contracts to Frank Lampard, Michael Essien and Florent Malouda, and are looking to replace Didier Drogba with another Ivorian – CSKA Moscow striker Seydou Doumbia.The Mail also report that Chelsea defender David Luiz is hoping to play for Brazil at this summer’s Olympics.And the Daily Star claim Arsenal are now in the race to sign Lille’s Belgian starlet Eden Hazard, who is said to be close to a move to Chelsea.This page is regularly updated.Wednesday’s Chelsea quiz: Farewell Didier Follow West London Sport on Twitter Find us on Facebooklast_img read more

Groves tipped to win world title in 2013

first_imgPromoter Frank Warren has predicted that George Groves will become a world champion next year.The 24-year-old from Hammersmith kept his Commonwealth super-middleweight title and his undefeated record by easily beating Glen Johnson on points on Saturday.Warren has plans for Groves.He might already be a world champion had an injury not forced him to pull out of a fight with Robert Stieglitz, who then held the WBO title, earlier this year.And Warren believes Groves is ready to move to the next level.“I do think George will go on now and win a world title, I really do,” he said.“He’s ended the year on a high note and set himself up for 2013 – and I think it’ll be a lucky 13 for him.“Glen Johnson is a tough man to keep on top of.

Classical Creation Physicists Still Make News

first_imgThey lived before relativity and quantum mechanics, but their insights continue to stimulate productive research in 21st-century physics.Most fields of science were overhauled in the twentieth century. There aren’t many theories from Victorian times that have survived unscathed.Lord KelvinWilliam Thomson, a.k.a. Lord Kelvin, the eminent physicist of Glasgow who dominated physical science in Victorian Britain, was a strong Christian. He gave Darwin a hard time — not with quotes from the Bible, but rather from laws of physics. Much of Lord Kelvin’s work on thermodynamics, communications and energy theory survives (e.g., the Kelvin Scale). Although some of his theories were discarded or revised, one of his speculative ideas about atoms has been ‘resurrected’ by cutting-edge physicists at the University of Durham in the UK. Lord Kelvin can be forgiven for lacking the tools to measure atoms when he was alive, but he may have been ahead of his time with one theory, says Phys.org:In the late 1800s when scientists were still trying to figure out what exactly atoms are, one of the leading theories, proposed by Lord Kelvin, was that atoms are knots of swirling vortices in the aether. Although this idea turned out to be completely wrong, it ushered in modern knot theory, which today is used in various areas of science such as fluid dynamics, the structure of DNA, and the concept of chirality.Now in a new paper published in Physical Review Letters, mathematical physicist Paul Sutcliffe at Durham University in the UK has theoretically shown that nanoparticles called magnetic skyrmions can be tied into various types of knots with different magnetic properties. He explains that, in a sense, these nanoknots represent a “nanoscale resurrection of Kelvin’s dream of knotted fields.“James Clerk MaxwellWithout controversy, Maxwell’s Equations continue to bear fruit in many fields of electromagnetics and electrical engineering. James Clerk Maxwell was another strong Bible-believing Christian all of his life, even through the Darwinian revolution. One of his insights about statistical thermodynamics has generated controversy to the present day. Called ‘Maxwell’s Demon’ (not his term), this idea proposes a way to overcome the law of entropy. Some entity, whether a conscious being (the ‘demon’) or some automaton, could selectively separate hot and cold molecules into separate compartments, he reasoned, thus overcoming the second law of thermodynamics. Proof that this was not idle speculation rendered obsolete by quantum mechanics can be seen by a recent paper in PNAS titled, “Observing a quantum Maxwell demon at work.” So important is the concept, the researchers state, “Maxwell’s demon plays a central role in thermodynamics of quantum information, yet a full experimental characterization is still missing in the quantum regime.”Science Daily confirms that importance with its title of a summary of the paper, “Pioneering research offers a fascinating view into the inner workings of the mind of ‘Maxwell’s Demon’, a famous thought experiment in physics.” The write-up at Phys.org suggests that important new breakthroughs will come from Maxwell’s insight:In the years since James Clerk Maxwell proposed the first demon around 1870, many other versions have been theoretically and experimentally investigated. Most recently, physicists have begun investigating Maxwell’s demons that operate in the quantum regime, which could one day have implications for quantum information technologies.Sir Isaac NewtonThe most famous scientist in history, Sir Isaac Newton, whose Principia launched the scientific revolution, is not a has-been after Einstein. In fact, his name keeps coming up in discussions of one of the biggest controversies of cosmology: Does dark matter exist? Now that repeated tests have failed to identify any substance, theoretical or actual, that could account for the motions of spiral galaxies and galaxy clusters, some physicists are looking to “Modified Newtonian Dynamics” (MOND) for help. One such example giving serious consideration to MOND can be found at Live Science, which mentions Newton eight times in a piece, “Is Dark Matter Real?”. The details of these debates need not concern us here; suffice it to say that there are discussions of ‘modifying’ Newtonian dynamics, not rejecting them, as some teachers seem prone to do with Newton’s theories in the age of Einstein. Students of science may not know that Isaac Newton wrote more about the Bible than he did about science.It’s worth remembering often that not all scientists are atheists, Darwinists, and materialists. In fact, many of the greatest scientists of all time, including founders of major fields of science, were at least theists if not Bible believers and creationists (see our list of biographies). Many still are today. The Darwinians are like the Marxist-Stalinist-Leninists who took over Russia, kicked out (or killed or imprisoned) everyone who opposed them, and presented themselves as the “saviors” of Russia. Don’t fall for the big lie. The insights of Newton, Kelvin and Maxwell sprang from minds devoted to God and His word, and one mark of a great scientific mind is the ability to produce ideas with staying power. But doesn’t Darwinism have staying power? Yes—by force (6/08/17). If Darwinism had to stand up to free debate, it would collapse like Lysenko’s fake science supported by Lenin, Stalin and Mao. Read our biographies and decide who had the best ideas with lasting impact. Much of cutting edge-science continues to build on their foundations. Conversely, much of the worst science comes from materialists (6/05/17, 5/19/17). You can’t get much good science out of evolved monkey brains mutating by chance (7/11/17).(Visited 485 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

The Frank Kovac Effect and What It Means for Your Future

first_imgThis work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License. This is part of the “Hi AleX,” series — advice to AleX NetLit about enhancing her levels of network literacy through day-to-day personal and professional social networking. AleX Netlit is a fictional persona created by Network Literacy Community of Practice to serve as a guide to Military Families Service professionals, Cooperative Extension educators and others seeking to learn more about using online networks in their work.More about Alex NetLit Hi AleX,This may strike you as an odd question: What does a middle-aged Wisconsin paper-mill worker possibly have to do with your professional future?Short answer: everything.The worker’s name is Frank Kovac, and a few years ago, he did something extraordinary. From a very early age, Kovac dreamed of becoming an astrophysicist. Difficult college math courses ended this dream, but it didn’t stop him from building his own planetarium in his free time — a facility he proudly describes to his visitors as the “world’s largest rolling, mechanical globe planetarium.”In fact, the Kovac Planetarium, located in the tiny, unincorporated northern Wisconsin community of Monico, has become a popular tourist attraction.Kovac has demonstrated that in terms of knowledge empowerment, people no longer have to wait on someone else — a teacher or a mentor, for example. They can tap into the enormous generative capacity of the Web to educate themselves.Call it the Frank Kovac effect.This holds major implications for you, AleX, because in spite of all the passion and commitment you pour into your job, people no longer have to wait on you. Thanks to the enormous generative capacity of the Web, they, like Frank Kovac, have the means of empowering themselves.Granted, your passion and commitment will always be key professional assets — that’s the good news.  The part you need to worry about is how you’ve been taught to conceive and deliver your products.You and millions of other professionals were trained to think about and deliver information in linear terms — through programs such as lectures, seminars, and workshops, with your students serving more or less as passive recipients of this instruction. Your work has been defined by those methods for the bulk of your career.The problem is that a growing number of people around the world no longer want to acquire knowledge this way. Thanks to the technological advances that have occurred within the last generation, they don’t have to anymore.In this respect, your methods are quickly rendering you obsolete.Yes, there is still a place for these methods. The growing numbers of people learning to empower themselves still like to enhance what they’ve learned with occasional face-to-face interactions with similar-minded people.Consequently, face-to-face interaction will always comprise a facet of your work. But make no mistake, AleX: Traditional face-to-face interaction will largely be supplanted by these emerging forms of learning.Pretty soon, you and everyone else will be challenged to think and work in ways that reflect the new, flattened information order that prevails in the 21st century.We’ve talked in the past about how acquiring networking skills will enable you to aggregate and curate vast amounts of online information for the benefit of those you serve. (I’m reluctant to use the term client because in this new information order, the people you serve are not clients in any conventional sense. They are equals — “co-learners” who are now equipped to engage in two-way dialogue with you and to collaborate on the design and distribution of your end products.)No doubt about it: Aggregating and curating information will be valuable skills in the future, but in this new information order, you will be valued even more for the role you serve in contributing to networks — virtual spaces where people can exchange information and, equally important, where ideas can meet, mate and morph into even bigger, more innovative ideas.Some Net experts and others prefer to describe these new virtual venues as ecosystems rather than networks— take your pick.The people who master skills and who see themselves as both co-learners and contributors to these networks will be the most highly valued and successful professionals of the 21st century.This is your professional charge, AleX. Good luck. This article was originally published Thursday September 6, 2012 on the Military Families Learning Network blog, a part of eXtension. Author: Jim Langcusterlast_img read more

The High Price of Transacting

first_img Essential Reading! Get my 3rd book: Eat Their Lunch “The first ever playbook for B2B salespeople on how to win clients and customers who are already being serviced by your competition.” Buy Now This is a painfully awful blog post to write. But it is, in fact, the most horrific example of the high cost of transactional behavior I have ever seen.On July 17th, Malaysian Airline flight MH17 was flying over war torn Ukraine. The plane was 300 meters over the restricted zone of 32,000 feet and still within reach of surface to air missiles. Two cargo planes had been shot down by missiles in this area earlier in the week, and British, European, and US commercial flights had been warned to avoid the area months earlier, beginning in April. Malaysian Airlines had also been warned.But these warnings were advisory warnings, there was nothing compulsory or binding that would have prevented any plane from choosing this flight path should they have wanted to take it, as long as they were above 32,000 feet.Why take the chance and fly over an area where two planes were just shot down? The answer, it seems, was that the route MH17 was the most direct flight path to Malaysia, making it the cheapest–and therefore the most profitable–route available.Before you decide this is an egregious crime, let’s hear from an expert: “Norman Shanks, professor of aviation security at Britain’s Coventry University. ‘They chose the most direct and economic flight route possible, which keeps their fuel costs down and is something we expect as customers. They were no different from any other international airline.’ Link From that same article, there is this: ‘Tony Tyler, director general of commercial air industry trade organization IATA, said: ‘No airline will risk the safety of their passengers, crew and aircraft for the sake of fuel savings. Airlines depend on governments and air traffic control authorities to advise which air space is available for flight, and they plan within those limits.’But do we expect our airlines to keep fuel costs down if it exposes us to greater risk? Would you expect that the fuel costs would be considered at all, given these circumstances? Would you expect that the airline would need to be compelled by government and air traffic control in order to avoid putting their passengers at risk? No passenger was given an opportunity to make an informed decision as to whether or not they were willing to bear the risk of flying over airspace in which a cargo plane and a fighter jet were destroyed in the  same week that MH17 was shot down.I doubt that the people that run the airline are bad people. Neither are the people in air traffic control. I have no idea about the financial condition of the airline, or any challenges they might be dealing with after one of their planes mysteriously vanished a few months ago. I don’t know who determined that they would take this route. But I do know that this is transactional behavior in its worst and most heinous form. The proof is the fact that 298 people were killed. They lost their lives, and their families lost them forever.Profit doesn’t come before people. There is nothing transactional about your relationship with transportation providers of any kind, and there is nothing more important than your safety. There are some areas where the outcomes of transacting can come at too high a price.last_img read more
