Recently I have been really into reading the NY Times. In fact, on my laptop the first favorite listed on the bar is "The New York Times" website.
Recently in Health news:
Phys Ed: Do Energy Drinks Improve Athletic Performance?
They talk about the recall on all Four Loco drinks (the new 'ish' alcohol and caffeine laced energy drink). They were recalled because they have been ruled 'unsafe' by the Food and Drug Administration. This brought up the question of what energy drink are safe? What energy drinks should remain on the shelves?
Then they talk about the fact that Energy drinks are NOT sports drinks and how they are loaded with sugar. I personally do not enjoys energy drinks, but I have many friends who do and now I know why they become extremely hyper after have a sip! :]
So the doctor whom they interviewed said that he wouldnt recommend Energy Drinks as a replacement for Sports drinks.
If you are as interested as is was you can visit this link to read the entire article:]

Popcorn's Dark Secret
Popcorn has been found to contain very large amounts of calories, salt, and fat.
A large tub of popcorn at Regal Cinemas, for example, holds 20 cups of popcorn and has 1,200 calories, 980 milligrams of sodium and 60 grams of saturated fat. Adding just a tablespoon of butter adds 130 calories. And do not forget that it comes with free refills.(Straight from the artical)
Lots of people say that popcorn is healthy but the way that our movie theaters make is (with added butter and salt) makes it worse.
