|We are experiencing an exceptionally hot summer. Although we know water is the best drink to quench the thirst, we are always looking for something different and exciting as a substitute for water, to spice things up.

Although a variety of foods contribute to the development of obesity, the contribution of soft drinks has proved to be significant. A closer look at these apparently “healthy” drinks can assist us in deciding whether they are beneficial or not.
