    My bet is pop. But that's because I'm an alcoholic.

    I'd say the pop is worse unless you're drinking super heavy, high calorie beer.

    There is like no possible way the pop can be healthier. It has more sugar [non diet], artificial flavorings made from who-knows-what-the-fuck, nearly 0 vitamins/nutrients, et cetera.

    Beer is just alcoholic and whatnot.

    People that drink a Mountain Dew or Diet Coke in the mornings are disgusting.

    I saw a (heavily built and bald but essentially) normal looking guy drinking from one of those really large - I'm not gonna look the measurements up - bottles of Coke on the London Underground last weekend. It was rather discomforting.

    Have you ever seen a fat guy walking around on a hot day with a two liter bottle of pop for hydration? I have. It was a sad sight to behold.

    Incidentally, my dad forwarded an email to me yesterday, as parents are wont to do. No idea how much of it's true, but I've never seen a "health benefits of pop" list.

    Potential Health Benefits Of Beer

    If you’re an occasional beer drinker, you may have been doing something good for your health without even realizing it. Here are the potential health benefits of drinking beer in moderation:

    • Better heart health: Those who drink a moderate amount of beer have been found to have a 31 percent lower risk for heart disease than those who don’t. Beer has also been found to reduce the risk of heart attack and death from cardiovascular disease by up to 40 percent. This is especially good news for those who have been drinking wine for these benefits, but would have preferred a nice cold beer.
    • More “good” cholesterol: Also leading to a healthier heart is the higher “good” cholesterol levels, which may result from drinking beer. Studies have found that moderate beer drinking can help increase a person’s levels of HDL cholesterol, which is the good cholesterol that helps prevent clogged arteries.
    • Reduced risk of stroke: A moderate amount of alcohol (including beer) is good for preventing stroke. That’s because the drinks help prevent blood clots from forming and restricting blood flow to the heart, neck and brain.
    • Cancer prevention: Though more research is needed, preliminary studies have found that a compound found in hops (which are used to make beer) may help to inhibit enzymes that trigger cancer. That same compound is also suspected to play a role in destroying carcinogens. Typically, microbrews are made with much more hops than mass-produced beers.
    • More vitamin B6: Beer drinkers have 30 percent more vitamin B6 in their blood than non-beer-drinkers and twice as much as those who drink red wine. That’s good news considering that vitamin B6 is essential for brain function, energy and fighting off disease.
    • Healthier kidneys: Those who drink moderate amounts of beer are much less likely to get kidney stones. In fact, the risk of kidney stones drops by about 40 percent for men if they are beer drinkers as opposed to non-beer drinkers.
    • Stronger bones: It turns out that drinking beer can lead to healthier bones. Studies have found that older individuals who drinking one or two beers a day have higher bone density. This is largely due to the fact that beer (especially pale ales) has a lot of silicon, which is great for bone health.
    • Sharper mental faculties: Some studies have found that older women who consume moderate amounts of alcohol experience better preservation of their mental abilities as they age. In fact, one study discovered that the risk of mental decline was reduced by as much as 20 percent by drinking about one beer a day.
    • More antioxidants: Beer has plenty of antioxidants, which help reverse cellular damage. For this health benefits, it’s better to have a dark beer since they have more antioxidants than light beers.

    Think of all the fat assholes that cheered Sarah Palin at CPAC last week when she drank from a Big Gulp.

    She probably had a diet coke which wouldn't have been banned anyway, poseur cunt. But yeah, cheering someone for chugging a liter of supposed high fructose corn syrup is typical red state boorishness.

    this is exactly what pissed me off so much about her Big Gulp stunt. she's fighting for your right to guzzle high fructose corn syrup, but she clearly knows the shit is vile and wouldn't touch it.

    Couldn't possibly care less about this particular regional issue and will be happy if we all just say "soft drink" henceforth and never talk about it again.

    Probably the pop, but that's only really going to be tooth decay. Never seen anything that suggests that any problems associated with drinking fizzy drinks aren't actually from sitting on your arise all day.

    Two medium strength beers a day isn't going to have a terrible effect on you. Doctor would probably suggest to take a couple of days off a week from the booze.

    i don't know about this. everything i've read about refined sugars and high fructose corn syrup demonstrates that it can be pretty bad for you, regardless of your level of physical activity.

    even for someone who is very physically active, two cans of Coke a day at 4 calories/gram is about 320 calories of sugar you're metabolizing every single day.

    "Mountain Dew Mouth" is a legit dental problem in some (rural?) areas.

    This is true but I can't imagine a large survey on this being able to find enough people who live perfectly healthy lives bar a desire for fizzy sugary drinks.

    I'm a fairly healthy/active person. Also I drank a lot of pop.

    A pop Slammer, if you will.
