Just TWO Sugary Drinks A Day Can Dull Taste Buds

Filed under: DietsFoodHealthObese

Fanta soda

And lead to drinking more calories!

New research from the UK suggests that drinking sugary beverages may begin a "vicious cycle" that can lead to obesity!

A new study has found evidence that drinking just TWO sugary beverages a day can dull taste buds within a month, leaving us hungry for high-calorie, sugar-laden food!

This alarming news was discovered after researchers asked lean and obese people to rate their perception and enjoyment of sweet and salty tastes. The obese participants in the study tended to rate identical drinks as less sweet than the lean ones did.

THEN they asked lean people, who usually did not consume sugary drinks, to consume a sugary drink twice a day for one month after their initial sensitivity was tested. After being re-tested a month later, their sensitivity to sweet tastes and conscious enjoyment of them had dulled.

Study authors found the results of the study to be alarming and think they may help explain the rising levels of obesity and diabetes across the world, saying:

"We are heading for a health disaster with rising obesity levels and the increasing incidence of type 2 diabetes. From our research it is clear to see how this situation may have created a cycle of sweet food and drink consumption. As taste satisfaction levels drop; the more sweet foods are consumed, contributing to these problems."

If this isn't encouragement to lay off of soda for a while, we don't know what is!

We've always said eliminating sugary beverages out of your diet and replacing them with water is a great way to cut down on caloric intake, but it might save your tastebuds too!

Spring Awakening Writers Working On New Alice In Wonderland Musical!

Filed under: Music MinuteBroadway Babies

Another re-interpretation of this story?

Granted, if anyone can make it work, it's them!

Steven Sater and Duncan Sheik, who are the authors behind the Tony Award-winning Spring Awakening, are currently workshopping a brand new show at London's National Theatre called Alice By Heart, which is inspired by Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland!

Sater explains of the piece, which was commisioned by the group's Connections program:

"It's about how to leave childhood behind and the challenge and struggle in that."

He goes on to say that the show will add a heightened sense of urgency and danger to the material, and will employ ensemble storytelling to explore "themes of grief and loss."

With the script and score expected to be completed in July, there will be a workshop presentation in the UK in November. Through the Connections program, 30 youth theatres will then get the chance to stage the show in February of 2012, and representatives from the National will attend them, and the best one will get to perform their version at the National Theatre the following summer!

What a wonderful opportunity for so many! We have a feeling that with this much talent going into it all, the show will have no problem getting picked up for a professional run in London or on Broadway!

Best of luck to everyone involved!

We can't wait to see how it turns out!
