NaturalNews Tip of the day (from Mike):

High-fructose corn syrup isn't the only thing in sodas that's bad for your health: The phosphoric acid is, in some ways, even worse: It's acidifies your blood, causing your bones to literally disintegrate slowly (while creating kidney stones at the same time).
