Flame Retardant in Gatorade?2:14 AM
I have never liked Gatorade or any of those sports drinks. I'm the type of person who prefers straight water to those flavored "electrolyte" drinks. Reading this story courtesy of Food, Inc. just disgusted me. I quit drinking soda, canned juices, even certain brands of bottled water about a year ago because I refuse to support companies like Coca Cola and Pepsi Co (who both bottle water as well). You have to know what you're putting into your body. Soda is terrible for your health. I used to be addicted to it and the "diet" or "zero" or "calorie free" versions of the soda are even worse for you than the full calorie versions because of the artificial sweetners they put in it. Oh man, I'm fired up to write about that topic this weekend. Until then, please read this helpful article from Food Inc. about the flame retardant in Gatorade...whaaaaat?
