I'd published "Another Kick at the Can of Soft Drinks and Soda Pop" on March 25, but was too busy to write a promotional article about the dangers of HFCS (high fructose corn syrup, known in Canada as sucrose-fructose).
Yesterday, I found a news item concerning research into carnitine, naturally found in even the leanest red meat but also in some diet supplements for weight loss.
Yesterday's news became today's "Possible Atherosclerosis Risks from Fat Burning Carnitine".
My additional observation is that carnitine is promoted for the double role of a "burn fat and build muscle supplement".
A Common Source for Carnitine and HFCS
Some energy drinks have both HFCS and L-carnitine. It's especially attractive if you want to boost your energy with muscle building supplements, and also as one of your fat burning foods.
The long-term risk with dietary carnitine is atherosclerosis. "What is atherosclerosis", you ask? Please read the appropriate article, above.
Meanwhile, HFCS carries other health risks, although they may also lead to atherosclerosis and its complications.

Two Mindful Writing Tips
First, keep an open mind as you read your news sources. Both of the above articles were triggered by "new news"; but I was primed to noticed them because of previous research I'd done and articles that I'd written.
Second, develop a methodology to promote and publicize your articles. You don't need to write your own; but if all you do is tweet to followers or post updates on Facebook or Google+, then set up reminders to do so.
I log those publicity actions in a spreadsheet. The incomplete actions demand my attention, partly due to the colour difference as strong as "orange" versus "green". (Even if the "orange" text isn't very legible here in Weebly, you noticed the gap in the above sentence).
So although I was plenty busy over the last two weeks, there was no chance I would completely forget to finish publicizing the "kick at soft drinks" article. The reminder was right there, just above the "atherosclerosis and carnitine" one.
