Green Dilemma • Gatorade vs. Vitaminwater
"The primary sweetener in Gatorade is high-fructose corn syrup, a sugar substitute that has been linked to obesity and a laundry list of other health issues."
Here’s a question to chew on: Do nutritional choices constitute a sustainability issue?
We say yes, that participating in the effort to create a more sustainable world requires that you be alive and well, and that maintaining good health means conserving resources better used by others.
A lifestyle that includes a vigorous fitness regimen is, or course, a great way to get there. But what about replenishing your body following exercise? The market for sports drinks has exploded, presenting fitness enthusiasts with an array of choices. Which offers the most health-friendly option? Or is there an alternative of the none-of-the-above variety?
We ask simply, sports drinks or not?
