It seems that there is a never-ending stream of research into soft drinks, high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), obesity and other health risks. At least, I keep noticing these research articles and reporting on them.

New and Updated Articles on Risks from Soft Drinks

"Energy Drinks with Caffeine: Von Dutch, et al" by "{* ferris!"
While writing a new article is rewarding, I feel it is also important to maintain older ones if possible, and where the material is relevant.

Today's article is "New Risk Found for Soft Drinks with High Fructose Corn Syrup" at my own DeHaan Fitness and Weight Control site. The new risk involves heart disease...please read it, especially if you drink five cans of soft drinks in a day.

I updated my Squidoo lens, "Weight Control Through Diet". I always felt that this is a work-in-progress, and will probably continue to be over its lifetime.

Naturally I promoted this article in my DeHaan Services blog; the "New Soft Drink Report Shows Problems Beyond Your Trimmer Body" post is similar to this.

Writing Tip

Some sites, such as Squidoo, Suite 101 and your own blogs or business sites, allow you to update articles long after they had been published.

Writing Tip: Here are three reasons to update old articles when you learn new, important and relevant information.

First, an update can be a valuable service to your readers.

Second, the update proves to your readers that you actually care about the subject and about the completeness and accuracy of your material.

Finally, Internet search engines may give you "bonus points" for the update. Just as you would probably rather read the latest research than something that might be outdated, so also the search engines favour fresh articles over stale.

    Flexible Sidebar

    Weebly's "Blog Author" widget from the Blog Sidebar's Elements menu provides a lot of flexibility. You can change both the title and the text.

    It has all the capabilities for text editing that you find in most Weebly text widgets.

    At this point, I don't see a way to code any HTML in this widget.

    The "Picture" does what you expect: it displays an image of your choice. I just added my home-made picture of "Copyright DeHaan Services 2013" as the top element in this sidebar on Jan. 22, 2013.

    The "Search Box" is a "Pro" feature; if you're paying for Weebly hosting, it may be worthwhile.

    The other widgets are pre-programmed to do what they say.
