How many energy drinks/sodas do you have a day? Take your pulse rate now, if you haven't had a soda in a while, and see what it is. The average resting heart rate is around seventy. The next time you have a soda of some sort, take your pulse, and post what it is. I can promise you it will be 80-90 BPM.

About 20 minutes ago I had 3/4 of a monster energy drink. My pulse rate is usually 71-72. My pulse rate now is 90. This is not a healthy for me.

Think about the burgers you eat from mcdonalds. Think of what they put in the cows to get as much meat out of them they can. It's not them who are killing us, we are. We have a choice to eat there, and we know what they put into our food. If we want this to end, we need to grow our own food. We know what we put in our food.

Start a garden, lead a healthier life, it will prolong, and save your life in the end.

Yeah, Wendy's must be a lot better. I suppose soda has a lot of sodium in it because when I was sodium restricted, I could have no soda. It has high fructose corn syrup, that is probably why I am addicted to soda. I know it is isn't good to drink soda every day, but I can not get used to drinking water. I can not develop a taste for it. I have tried.

when I was married we raised cattle and yes matter of fact, we gave little implants of steroids to cattle. I didn't know what it was for at the time, but we did. My hubby said it was to make them grow fast.

My pulse rate is 88 right now.

If i could give you more stars, i surely would. This is so true. Nobody really forces us to eat/drink junk. It is more available and cheaper, sure. But it is not the only option. And we are what we eat. At least physically.

Really who cares? If we enjoy it and don't take it to extremes anything in life, then what is the harm? We breathe the polluted air everyday, should we stop breathing??? Really, life is lived to be enjoyed and not spend it worrying about every little thing that can possibly kill us...we could step outside our homes in today's world and have a car hit us so what the heck does this matter in the scheme of things...I won't change my lifestyle or give up things I like because it may or may not cause my death, and be miserable living that way! I choose to be happy... screw what the AMA or government says!!!

So you'd rather die younger instead of living longer? It's not that hard to change your diet. Even if you aren't over weight, it is nice to live longer. I know what happens when people put things in there body that aren't ment to be there (smoking) and I don't want to see anyone else suffer like he did.

And why would I want to prolong my life? I never did anything with it anyway, but I had fun. I feel That I had what I wanted out of my life. I don't want to live long enough to get alzheimers...bad hips, incontinance...who would??? That's crazy. Die young look pretty, die old looking wrinkled and pooping yourself? No thanks I'll take my chances.

Die old with wisdom. Who cares about the material aspects of life.

There is more to life then just living a life style or eating healthy, its about ensuring that future generations can have the freedom to do both with a balanced economy

I'm assuming you're either young and/or you don't have kids. It's not so much about living longer. It's about living comfortably and living without the high costs of healthcare. Eating healthily essentially lowers your cost of living in the future.

So.....wanna try again?

I do have kids and don't want to live to be a burden to them, I have wisdom well beyond my years, and I never go to doctors, butchers I mean except when I had my kids and only because they make you see doctors when you're pregnant or you risk losing your kids, so I had no choice, but given the choice, I would rather see a reikki specialist and use herbal and home remedies that are much better at solving the problems then drugs are. I eat healthy but I also have sodas and the occasional hamburger, chances are I would only see a doctor if someone ran into my vehicle or injured me very seriously some other way, Other wise, I'd handle it myself, anything not too serious, Whatever. Healthcare is an expensive joke anyway. So try again.

Okay but why would you want to live longer....? so you can finally get the chance to wear depends...I dont really care about making it to 80, sounds like living hell to me... 60 would be max then youthenasia me... even being 60 wouldnt be so great, unless your filthy rich... which mst of us wont be.

By that time most of thepensions should be ancient history. Because if these companies get a way with declaring backruptcy and taking peoples pensions down with them, waht would stop another and another from doing it to attain profits..? being old sucks thats why being young is good.... do you really want to see old saggy boobs... or look at young beutiful women knowing you cant have that anymore... sure being knowledgable and distinguished works for captain picard, but we aint in hollywood, at least most of us.

Wisdom dictates that one understand their viewpoint is not the only one, and that one cannot help another by controlling what they do. That is the folly of youth.

You say you want to live longer. I understand and do not admonish you for that natural desire. But I ask you, at what price would you wish to live longer? If your head could be attached to a machine that would keep oxygen going to your brain, would you want to live without being able to move? If you knew for a fact that every day you lived would include extreme pain form some debilitating illness, would you still choose to prolong your life?

What price life?

I prefer to live as long as I can enjoy myself in some way and can be helpful to others. When I can no longer enjoy life, and am no longer useful, I would actually prefer to die. That way I make room for my children and their children to take my place and experience this great circle of life we live under.

I also understand that this body is little more than a physical image of my spirit, which is not dependent on this body for existence. Death is but a respite from life. Some days I think I could use a nice relaxing vacation.


I had a great-uncle whom I admire to this day. He died at age 99 of stomach cancer, which was so pronounced by the time he went to a doctor, there was nothing they could do. Prior to that point of his life, a mere six months at the end, he was strong and capable, even able to outwork me while I was in my prime. He lived alone after his beloved wife passed on. He died in a bed in his brother's house, choosing not to die in a hospital. He drank his gin, smoked his cigars, and ate fried food right up till the end, and died with a smile on his face.

May my life be as full as his. May my life never be a torment to myself and others.

I think I'll have a smoke. Excuse me, please.

I'll be the first to admit that I could cut down on the caffeine. I am very dependent on it, and I'll take it in any form I can get it. Coffee usually in the morning and a sugar free energy drink in the afternoon. I have mood swings without it.

Anyone have any tips for cutting out the caffeine without going crazy?

Okay, I know, I know! I have to stop drinking those energy drinks but damn - I like them, the fizzy bubbles...the supposed extra, quick energy that they provide.......I need help, people.

Seriously, I have up to 2 or 3 a day - more when I'm drinking booze.....

urgh - the amount of sugar that's in them.....

I will not prolong my life more than is needed. I am not going to be on a oxygen machine, because I will refuse. there is a time when death comes, but it is not going to be early for me. Death will come when it naturally comes, the only way I will prolong my life is if I know I will live a happy and healthy life.

To be frank, all the time 'scientists' are telling us that something else is unhealthy. The reason everything is so unhealthy is because we have such a low immune system, and way too many ways to use less energy.

When my parents were kids, they'd go out, drink from streams, eat random berries, play in the mud and all sorts. If they ever got ill, they'd get over it, and go back out and do it all again. They never had mobile phones, computers, microwaves or any of this crap. They went to friend's houses to speak to them. They ate what they were given because they had no choice. Chippies or other fast food was a treat, and they'd always go out to burn off that extra fat - bikes, skipping, hide and seek, football - you name it.

It's time we stopped blaming fast food companies for our health problems, and started noticing ourselves what we put into our bodies, and what we do to stop from getting fat!
