    More dead white mice injected with massive dosages of something until they die.

    Where is PETA when you need them?

    Yet another reason not to drink modern soda.
    I quit drinking pop I guess it was about 4 years now because of kidney stones.
    But I get an array of great side effects..

    1) I sleep better
    2) I no longer feel like I am "drugged" in the mid-afternoon..where I could barely function till I went to the pop machine.
    3) I lost 12 lbs.
    4) My blood sugar stabilized (I have diabetes in my family..I don't have it - but I do have some symptoms of it)

    Other than that - I have the satisfaction knowing I am not ingesting a chemical-sugar-laden concoction that made me feel bad.

    Sounds like symptoms of sugar overdose. It was a good idea to stop.

    I have never liked Colas.

    I cant drink a whole can of ginger ale let alone a cola.

    I drink clean cold water filtered at the tap.

    a couple of cups of weak coffee in the morning and water all day long.

    Coffee works with me, but only one cup a day. Then I go to tea.

    I love my coffee.

    I drink it really weak so I dont feel quilty sharing a pot with my hubby in the morning.

    I drank green tea for quite awhile but got back into the coffee due to having it arround for guests.

    Green tea with whatever fruit juice you have arround is a great summer drink.

    I think I will buy another coffee maker for tea again. Its how I used to make it. Make it in a pot just like the coffee.
