If you eat prepackaged foods, buy your meat from the grocery store, or drink any kind of packaged drinks your getting unhealthy junk anyway....so I say live dangerously. Drink soda, lots of soda, even the dark kind....

Unless you're growing every ounce of your food and raising all the animals you eat then you cannot escape all the stuff they are putting in "all" foods. So why worry about a little sugar?? A little carbonation?? Why pick on soda???


Seriously, my kids use to get so angry with me because I wouldn't buy soda's (at least not for them lol) or kool aid or anything like that. I would buy juices. I know how quick it is to get addicted to that stuff. So now that two of them are grow they don't drink much soda.

We didn't have much soda/pop growing up, simply because it was too expensive, but we did drink bunches of kool-aid. But then, by modern standards, I'm dead.

I just juice alot at home, I don't really miss the fizzy stuff. I prefer fresh juices both fruit and veg and smoothies of course.

Don't drink fizzy drinks, don't care for them really. I do like the odd glass off sparkling water and appletizer.
The only time I buy coke is when I'm going to use it for meat marinade or when I have an upset stomach I drink flat coke.
Pregnant woman are allowed to drink 300mg of caffeine daily if they're in good health (that's 2 small cups of coffee)
Personally I love caffeine, drink coffee every day and when I have a vodka I drink it with either sugar free redbull or cranberry juice.
If you have to worry about everything that's bad for you, you might as well stop living!
Everything in moderation I say :)

I'm with you Snip! A healthy person can enjoy most things in moderation. There are many people who drink large amounts of soda daily and that much caffeine can't be good for you, but those of us that have a cup of coffee or two in the morning really have nothing to worry about.
