    Mountain Dew is bad for seizures, right?

    Hi Phyllis,

    I've been told to cut back on the carbs and starch foods because to much sugar can trigger sz. for some people but everyone is different. Mountain Dew has a lot of sugar so you might want to be careful. I like to drink ginger ale and
    ice tea in the warmer weather, there's less sugar in both beverages and the ice tea has antioxidants which is good for a persons health. Here's wishing you well and May God Bless You!

    Mountain Dew also has a lot of caffeine in it.

    Phyllis, I'm totally addicted to my one DIET Mt. Dew every morning. so I feel for you. mind you I spent a long time breaking my diet soda habit (and ranting about aspartame!) then got hooked on this stuff. high in sodium also. find something healthy to drink dear.and can't go wrong with ice water.good luck!

    I think I've seen ads for stuff you can add to water for flavor? and color.

    Pati, I know, you can add stuff to water to make stuff like lemon-ade and stuff, but, I mean, having to give
    stuff like, soda. Not much, you can substitute for that!! lol

    supposedly caffeine isn't good for the heart, fibromyalgia, Gerd and a lot of other things. Then they say that the depression rate among coffee drinkers is lower than non caffeine drinkers but if you drink too much of it then that is bad. It seems that everything we consume is good in some ways bad in others.

    Mountain Goo, as I refer to it, has 1/2 milligram less caffeine than Pepsi One. At least that was in 2009 I think it said.

    Now me I want to have my daily Coke. I haven't drank coffee in over a year.

    It is just one more risk you expose yourself to. Or we expose ourselves to lol.
