Maybe its more of the health or self image of those who are drinking a lot of sodas that is causing the depression. If you have that many, you can't be in the best of shape and health... And the part about those who drink Diet drinks are more likely also helps aid my opinion. They are drinking diet because they already are somewhat aware of their body.

These chicken-egg studies always baffle me. It can easily be said that studies show 30% of people with depression also like to drink a fair amount of soft-drinks. I'm not saying soft-drinks can't cause depression, I'm saying you can't tell if depressed people like soft-drinks or soft-drinks cause depressed people....

Personally I drink coke zero quite a bit, probably 5 glasses a week or so and I feel fine!

Couple of problems. They are talking about people who drink 4 cups/cans a day, not a week. and they admit the cause and effect issue:

[quote]The researchers acknowledge the study does not prove a cause and effect. In other words, it could be that people who are depressed tend to drink more soda.[/quote]

I see tons of 10yo, 11yo, 12yos drinking Mountain Dew....

Was like REALLY? That **** has more caffeine than Coke. Not to mention the HFCS.

I usually pick Pepsi Throwback if I want to have some soda fix. But unfortunately it's very hard to find them in stores.

No the point is these same people may have had the depression with or without the Soda. (now had there have been alcoholism then yes i could see that because it is known to kill brain cells.)

Yeah, but the sugars and acids can do a [i]number[/i] on your teeth. Plus there's all the sweeteners (especially in diet sodas) that have bad effects on your body.

It took them this long to figure it out. They didn't clue in as: Money does the talking. I often have alot of soda. I don't have it to feel good. i have it as it has taste and it gives something to drink.

Just give it 10 years or so. They will activate the alien chemicals in there and turn you into a mindless drone.
