The results of the Boston University study, published in the journals Alzheimer's & Dementia and Stroke, accounted for factors that could have influenced the findings, such as age, sex education, exercise and calorie intake.

Virgin drinks just get you into trouble for the long term. The alcoholic drinks, everyone knows they have a reputation, so if you have a bad feeling the next morning...It's temporary.

Or they forgot to put in a comma.

"Full-fat drinks?" WTF? Those darn Brits and their Engrish. They're so cute.

Diet soda: leave it! Fake food can never be good for us.

Okay. One more time, for anyone who'd been asleep in the back: "association" "correlation" "linked to" can (and, for purposes of science/medicine reporting, probably should be) replaced with "has farkall to do with"

The research also found that regular consumption of sugary drinks, including fruit juices, were also associated with a poorer memory and overall smaller brain brain volumes.

I drink a lot of OJ and can't remember shiat.  Or vice versa.

No because everyone has already seen that lame xkcd, and the authors of this paper know better than some hack comic writer.

It's not the authors of the paper I'm worried about, it's the farker who wrote a headline based on a journalist who rewrote the press release written by communication major. PHD Comics has one up on xkcd this time.

What?  No.  I was...   just looking over my notes.  Say... This isn't poly-sci.  Who are you people?  Is that clock right?

Was pretty embarrassed the first few times that happened to me.

I am always amazed when I hit the bottle all night, get way too hammered and wake up feeling awesome.  If I do that with beer, I wake up a day and a half later feeling like hell.

British slang. Means the full sugar variety.

That's what happens when guys don't finish.  Did you think that kid in high school was just trying to get laid?  No, he knew the correlation between blueballs and stroke.

I'm still going to put Tonic and Lime in my shot if it's ok. So far that's kept the Malaria and Scurvy at bay and I'm not taking any chances.

Is it a West Indian lime? The Royal Navy's lime juice ended up with almost no vitamin C.

"They found that people who drank at least one artificially-sweetened beverage a day were 2.9 times more likely to develop Alzheimer's disease and three times as likely to suffer an ischemic stroke than those who barely drank any. "

The headline blames the fizziness, but the report indicates the artificial sweetener is the problem.

"people who drank at least one artificially-sweetened beverage a day were 2.9 times more likely to develop Alzheimer's disease and three times as likely to suffer an ischemic stroke than those who barely drank any."

So sucralose, stevia, and 'sweet and low' are all the same. That's a broad brush there Lou.

Okay, so where's the comparison with people that drank naturally sweetened beverages?

I couldn't read the article because of the adblocking deterrent, so I'm just going to take the headline on faith. It makes sense to avoid sugar filled mixers and calorie filled beer.

You what they say, "if the only tool you have is a broad brush, everything looks like a... uh, a town!  Let's paint it red!"

All different artificial sweeteners lumped together (and sugar) are associated with health outcomes worse than eating butter with a fork.

Yes the coonts are trying to equate sugar with fat as if they are equals.
The reality is sugar is terrible for you while fat is good for you.
The fake sugar just happens to be even worse for you than the real sugar.

Sometimes the broad brush is accurate.

Wait, is that refrigerated butter or melted butter?  'Cause eating it with a fork, that could make a lot of difference to your health.

It is all the same temperature in your tummy. So 100 calories of fat is healthier than 100 calories of sugar. Butter doesn't dissolve in my hot tea so cream instead of sugar.
