Staying sweet

Posted May 14, 2009 6:50 a.m. EDT

I gave up regular soft drinks for diet sodas in 2000, and I can no longer drink the cloying, syrupy sugar-sweeteened drinks.  It took about a week of diet soft drinks before I got used to it, but I think of all the calories and high-fructose corn syrup I've avoided.  

And please don't send me the yards-long e-mail (with all the >>>>'s in front of every line) from 11 years ago outlining all of the aspartame conspiracy theories. 

I try to avoid sugar, especially since a nurse friend told me, "Cancer loves sugar."  Yipes!  I don't want to serve cancer its favorite meal.

So with that in mind, here's a site that shows you in cube-form how much sugar they cram into popular drinks and foods.
