The more diet sodas a person drank, the greater their risk of becoming overweight. Downing just two or more cans a day increased waistlines by 500%. Why? Artificial sweeteners can disrupt the body's natural ability to regulate calorie intake based on the sweetness of foods, suggested an animal study from Purdue University. That means people who consume diet foods might be more likely to overeat, because your body is being tricked into thinking it's eating sugar, and you crave more.Wow. Even more wow, if you mix diet soda with alcohol you will get "drunker, faster." Diet soda can rot your teeth and can impact your reproductive system. Read the article because it is kind of scary.
Ketchup actually started out as a fish sauce and somehow evolved into the much more widely-consumed condiment we know today. Early recipes of ketchup contained sodium benzoate -- which was banned in the 1906 Pure Food and Drug Act. That ban led to other formulations which contained vinegar as a preservative and used ripe tomatoes.Between this and the true history of Worcestershire sauce, I am feeling very culturally superior today, culinarily speaking!

'Tea consumption may lower the risk of type 2 diabetes by influencing glucose digestion, glucose uptake, and by protecting beta-cells from free-radical damage. This beneficial effect may be due to the polyphenols present in tea.’More research is needed, and it is important to distinguish between causation and correlation. The fact that heavy tea drinkers develop diabetes less often may not be due to the tea drinking. It could be that crumpets, a British tea time snack, is a great undiscovered cure for diabetes!
Have you ever bitten into a pizza made not of bread but cookie dough? Step right in to Mr. Pizza and order the Grand Prix. Its toppings include sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, and raisins.Shrimp injected with mayonnaise is a popular topping in Japan, and Koreans like Swiss cheese on their pizzas. I think the Japanese restaurant, Strawberry Cones, has completely reinvented pizza:
Of course, they also throw shrimp and potato on top, and serve it with a blueberry dipping sauce!
And for your choice of toppings, you have a choice between the following:
1. 7-Veggie Variety: asparagus, corn, paprika, parsley, eggplant, zucchini, onions, and pizza sauce
2. Milakoreno: hamburger, bologna sausage, fresh tomatoes, broccoli, onions, mayo, parsley, and pizza sauce
3. 5-Cheese Variety: Camembert, Samsoe, Gouda, Steppen, Parmesan, along with fresh tomatoes, garlic, basil, parsley, and pizza sauce
4. Fluffy Prince and ChikichikiTeri: Charcoal fire-grilled chicken, egg, parsley, mayo, and teriyaki sauce.I think you will be happy to learn that True Thai has no plans to start serving pizza!
