    Correlation does not equal causation.

    That text should read “There is an association between diet soda consumption and metabolic syndrome / type 2 diabetes” not that diet soda increases the risk. That implies a causative link that is totally unproven.

    Fair enough. As Haidt would say, a high correlation should invoke a curiosity to discover what's going on. Maybe Bikman should be working on that.

    I've done 96 hour fasts each month for the last three months, hoping the autophagy will eat my brain wastes, since alzheimers runs in my family. One thing I've noticed is that fasting has lost religious significance for me, since a two-meal fast is for pussies. It's not till 72+ that I start communing with the forces of nature.

    Holy crap. I want some details. How is the hunger? Fatigue? You taking vitamins of some kind? I assume you are dropping some serious weight.

    Sure it might be as simple as that people who drink diet soda daily are more likely to be eating horrible foods from 7-11 and McDonalds with their diet drinks. That’s where a lot of the soda is purchased and they get food with it.
