My office at work used to be right near the vending machines for the floor, and thus I got to meet a lot of people who came by for their daily soda break. I'm really impressed by the pervasiveness of soda (or pop or whatever your preferred local term is for it). While it did start out as a "health food", really, for the most part it's liquid carbohydrate input. There's even some research to indicate that even "diet" sodas aren't much better as they just potentiate the desire for sugar without actually fulfilling it. Fact is, most people who simply give up drinking soda tend to lose weight - and save money.
Well, aside from the so-called healthier claims of soda made with cane sugar as opposed to high fructose corn syrup, now I discovered this can of Cherry 7-Up Antioxidant.
Sorry, it's still not health food.
