Rat Has No Control: High Fructose Corn Syrup, Cane Sugar, Glucose, Sucrose

Many years ago I saw a documentary on PBS. Something about stress in animals, including, supposedly, humans. Anyway, as they were interviewing some human, a sign on one of the cages in the background read, "RAT HAS NO CONTROL." I have almost never stopped laughing about the beautiful truth of those four words of homemade bumper sticker. This is the answer to the majority of the world's questions. 

To be fair, there must have been another cage back there that had a sign reading, "RAT HAS CONTROL." This was the point of the experiment, to show that rats with some control (and predictability of circumstances, as I recall) were much more able to handle rat stress induced upon them by humans. Anyway, great show, and one I've remembered for a long time, eh? 

This site mentions the experiment (check out the base url!):

SportsGeezer's Health and Fitness Blog

I've been noticing lately that a lot of my fitness-related searches return hits on SportsGeezer's blog. In particular, his "Healthy Eating" topic seems to cover a lot of stuff that's been discussed on this site lately. It looks like he mostly blogs on stories appearing in the NY Times and LA Times, but he's a steady poster and adds thoughtful comments, and so I thought it might be a useful reference for our gang.

Coke + Camelbak

Some time ago, Skart asked on the Skweight Management thread:

 

"Another question. Did anybody try flat Coke or Pepsi as an energy drink in their camelbaks? I can just see deluted Coke and Elite water making a pretty good combination"
