^^ Itty bitty bladder committee repreSENT!

I've more or less weaned myself off real (non-diet) soda, but will treat myself once in a while to a good ol' Coke.

I drink water throughout the day, but like to have something with flavor with meals. I do need to be better about cutting these nasty high fructose corn syrups and artificial sweeteners out of my diet, though.

I admit it, I'm a sucker for sodas. I need to knock it off.

Are the sodas with real cane sugar any better than the ones with HFC?

I do not drink sodas daily, but when I do have one I usually buy a glass bottle of Cheerwine. This small company still uses real cane sugar.

I think it's a refreshing drink.

But you didn't answer the question

It doesn't matter if it's refreshing, is it healthier? I'm sure heroin is refreshing, but I'm not going to make it part of my diet...

Someone who swears by the health benefits of dairy fats is going to have an objective opinion?

Who cares if it's healthier? Soda's bad for you no matter what, and HFCS is terrible for you. Soda made with real sugar tastes waaaaay better.

I do!

I asked the question!

We know HFCS is bad for us, but is cane sugar better?

Well I don't really see how they are insofar that the biggest problem with these drinks is that they are huge sources of empty calories - tons of sugar/carbs and no nutritional value. Replacing HFCS with sugar does nothing significant to change that.

At least the diet ones have no caloric intake to speak of.

High Fructose Corn Syrup

Do a search on high frurtose corn syrup.

It's a lot cheaper for soda companies to use than real sugar.
That's why they use it.

It's a bad thing causing a lot of problems.

If you agree, please let the soda companies know your complaints.
