What do Americans call a sugary carbonated beverage?
It is SODA in the NorthEast and South Florida; also in the west coast.
In the midwest and the north/northwest, POP seems to be favoured.
Southerners as individualistic as they are, refer it to by the brand name: Coke, Dr Pepper etc.
As I work with the Indians, and not wanting to be misunderstood, I would ask: how much sodapop do you drink per day..
I am always prepared for the answer, as some of them drink liters of that stuff per day...
I am convinced that as little as one can of highfructosecornsyrup/maltodextrin infused carbonated drink PER DAY can cause Metabolic Syndrome. I have seen many many cases of Type 2 Diabetes which disappeared when the person stopped drinking Carbonated beverages.
No amount of research (usually done with financial support of these companies) is going to convince me that these carbonated beverages are not poisonous!
So how much SodaPop do you drink per day?
