Well I think we all know that if we moderate it its some sugar is okay and of course there are both good sugars and bad sugars but I just saw this ad, http://www.***********.com/video/xd6bmr_don-t-drink-sugar-drink-wat-aah_lifestyle never seen the product before and won't try it but I like that it promotes healthy drinking habits to the younger population, just not sure if it will be effective. What do you guys think about it?

I'm not sure that it does promotes healthy drinking habits as much as it promotes drinking a specific product (WAT-AAH!), a water beverage (one of the varieties is pure water, the other flavors include other ingrendients and flavorings, such as calcium and other electrolytes).

I think it reinforces the ideas that there's something worng with "plain" water - and that even plain water should be purchased in bottles to be healthy.

Water sold in single-use plastic bottles, creates a lot of unnecessary garbage. It's not a dietary issue, but it is an economic and ecological one.


I'm not saying it's a bad product, but it's primary purpose is to sell that product. If parents want to buy it, that's fine, but I don't think the commercial will do much if anything to convince kids to drink water out of the tap, which is the most enconomical, ecological choice, and usually just as healthy (in most cases tap water is no more or less healthy than bottled water.

Bottled waters can be unfiltered tap water - and even when filtered, most people can get the exact same results with a Britta or other cheap filtering system.

hmm don't know why the link is not showing up and I cant seem to get it to work, but that's an interesting take on it I didn't get that they are saying there is something wrong with plain water.

There is some word in the link that the censor catches. Can you type the word by itself - maybe with spaces?

the word that is XXXX is D a i l y m o t i o n (without spaces of course) and the rest of the link is .com/video/xd6bmr_don-t-drink-sugar-drink-wat-aah_lifestyle

No idea why that is in the censor unless they spammed us in the past. :shrug:

I didn't get it to open. I just cut the part of the link after the censored asterisks, and then pasted that into a google search.

That led me to a page with the complete link.

I routinely do this, when I get a link that doesn't work. Usually it's a typo, so I cut what I think is likely the most unique (and correct) portion of the link and then paste it into a search to see if I can find it. 9 times out of 10 I can.

I love google.
