If you're anything like me, you can feel it coming... the decorations go up, usually in the department stores first. Then the music starts being piped in and you find yourself singing the familiar songs that continue to strengthen the notion that it's almost here. And then it happens - they start playing the Coca-Cola Christmas commercials on TV and it's confirmed - the holiday season is indeed here!During this time of year it seems that everything is somehow a little bit sweeter and maybe even gentler - despite the fact that there are so many things to get done, presents to buy, trees to be trimmed, cards to be written, and the list goes on. Underneath it all however is the true Spirit of the holiday season. I think it's why overall, we like this time of year - people are nicer to you in the stores, even customers make the effort to be a little bit more patient when there are long lines. The holiday commercials on the TV capture visions of delicious meals, family and friends gathering and of course children eagerly awaiting Santa's arrival. Never mind

Have you heard the rumors about dental implants and teeth dissolving in various types of cola? Let's face it: we all know that sodas, regular or diet, have no nutritional value. They also contain items that are harmful to humans' or other living being's health. Ingredient lists for various colas include caffeine, sugar, high fructose sweeteners or artificial sweeteners such as aspartame, carbonated water, cola nuts, and phosphoric acid. Seems like a long list of ingredients for a staple beverage in American culture, doesn't it? Here are some things to think about regarding soft drinks and your pearly whites, natural or implanted:What are Dental Implants?Dental implants are a cutting edge way of replacing lost teeth. In the olden days, when a person lost a tooth or a whole mouthful of them, he or she had no choice but to go toothless, wear dentures or partial bridges glued in with adhesives or cement. These options weren't perfect by any means and the new implantation techniques have been found far superior. The implant technology consists of placing a titanium screw

It has been proved that there is a relationship between normal cola and gout. One of the reasons is because cola contains high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) which has been linked to higher gout risks.But many, if not most, sweet drinks like cola and other sodas contain HFCS, which is why the advice for many years has been to avoid sweet, fizzy soda drinks if you suffer from gout.So, does it follow that if you change from normal cola or soda to diet cola / soda you cut out the risk of gout? Well, it depends who you believe. In my research I came across many gout sufferers who said that when they changed to diet cola their gout went away. On the other hand, I've come across others who have said the opposite.And, in terms of the professionals, some researchers say that there is a link between diet colas / sodas and gout, whilst others say that there isn't such a link. Of course we need to understand who these researchers are and who they get their funding from, right?But what isn't in dispute is that diet cola and similar diet

In 1985 Coca Cola decided to terminate their flagship brand Coca Cola and launch a formula sweeter than it.To understand why, let's go back a few years.
In the 60s Pepsi repositioned itself as a youth brand, even though it was loosing out its elderly customers to Coke. This move brought them enormous success, it perfectly complimented the rivals 'old and classic' look. With a narrowed focus, it came to be seen as a 'drink of the youth'.
In the 70s Cokes rival started the Pepsi challenge which was a blind test between its own product and the Coke. To the companies terror most of the participants preferred Pepsi to Coke.
