Drink Only Water

I see that Nanny has become so paranoid about obesity, that she has resorted to telling us that in order to avoid gaining weight we should not drink anything other than water.

Seemingly, if some "research" carried out on seven people (yes, SEVEN people) published in Nature is to be believed, artificial sweeteners in diet drinks and food could cause obesity and diabetes.

The hapless seven volunteers were asked to consume the equivalent of 40 cans of diet cola a day for a week.

Guess what?

There blood sugar levels went berserk!

Now call me "picky", but who that fark drinks 40 cans of diet cola a day?

Anyhoo, based on that load of bollocks Dr Katarina Kos, Senior Lecturer and Consultant in Diabetes and Endocrinology at the University of Exeter, is quoted by the Telegraph:
The study is based primarily on mouse experiments and only seven human subjects were studied. The findings require further confirmation prior to making firm conclusions. Larger scale human studies and funding are urgently required controlling for overall calorie intake."
Adding that water was the healthiest drink option.

    Larger scale human studies and FUNDING ...

    That's what it is all about, follow the money!

    BTW, I drank a glass of water last night, suitably diluted with some cask-strength Aberlour.
