Could ‘America’s Sweetheart’ Be the Gateway to Kids’ Consumption of Diet Sodas?

It turns out the Mediterranean diet delivers. For one, itas simple to follow. The dietary guidelines are quite general a it doesnat prescribe specific meals or special foods to eat, and there are no hard and fast rules to obey. As a result, the diet is remarkably easy to implement, itas flexible, and it doesnat take any extra time to prepare your food. In fact, I found the diet helped to simplify my meals, which actually reduced the time I spent in the kitchen. Secondly, the Mediterranean diet helps to save you money. The mix of foods in the diet generally doesnat cost as much as the foods in a typical western meat-based diet. As well, following the diet forces you to eat at home more often. While itas certainly possible to make healthy eating choices while dining out, it can be difficult to moderate the ingredients and portions of your meals at restaurants.

Moreover, 77 percent of respondents surveyed showed an interest in trying or buying the product. The respondents discussed the ad’s impact in terms of its entertainment value and inspiration with one participant saying, “Diet Coke gave Taylor Swift the inspiration to write her song; if I drink it maybe it will inspire me to write too.” Another stated, “We love her music; if Taylor thinks its good for her it must be good for me.” One respondent declared, “If you are a real Taylor Swift fan you will want to try it. She’s beautiful, pretty and a great singer. Who wouldn’t want to be like her?” One participant also revealed, “I’m not allowed to drink Diet Coke, but after seeing Taylor in this ad it made me want to drink soda or regular Coke.” These verbatim responses are consistent and exemplify the reactions of the participants in the study. However, in terms of believability, seven out of 10 kids doubt if Taylor truly stands behind the brand or if she actually consumes Diet Coke on a regular basis. Their purchase interest drops down significantly to 23 percent after a discussion on the unhealthy effects of diet sodas. Many of them cited diet sodas as having “acid,” “empty carbs,” “fake stuff,” “artificial sugars” and “sweeteners” that could lead to serious health problems and they do not believe Taylor Swift, who is, by their account, “pretty,” “healthy,” and “active,” would regularly drink an unhealthy product. The respondents also expressed concerns that Taylor Swift is endorsing Diet Coke for additional fame and money regardless of the implications to kids’ health.


Health Site Flaws Test Democrats’ Unity As Attacks Rise

Each event, she said, has drawn crowds of curious, excited people. Many of them are the working poor. “They have never had health care before — they’ve only gone to the emergency room,” she said. “They want more information, and they want to know how they can enroll.” SEIU has also contracted with Working Partnerships USA to operate a phone bank, targeting ZIP codes with a high percentage of uninsured. Blue said the combined strategies have helped the union contact more than 55,000 people since August. Another organization that got a Covered California grant is the California NAACP, which received $600,000 to focus on the African-American community. Ron Nicholson is grateful for that. Following a Sunday service at San Jose’s First AME Zion Church, the Redwood City resident stopped by the table where certified educators Ellen Rollins and Tonya York waited to answer questions and hand out materials.

But once those are fixed, and I think they will be, everyones going to be focusing on whos signing up and what theyre getting for it, and thats going to be the key issue. Enrollment Hindered The Obamacare health-insurance exchanges enrolled 248 people in their first two days, as website outages and software errors hindered sign-ups, according to documents obtained by a congressional oversight committee. Notes from three meetings at an Obama administration war room, obtained by Republican Representative Darrell Issa of California , show six people had enrolled on Oct. 1, the first day of the websites operation. The summary of an Oct. 2 meeting said direct enrollment is still not working and about 40,000 applicants idled in a virtual waiting room. Issa is chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. The documents were circulated by Republican opponents of the health law who are seizing on the botched rollout even as a new poll shows more Americans than not want to expand Obamacare or keep it intact.
