Sports drink is high in glucose in order to give the quickest boost in energy and replenish bloody sugar in short time. It is not actually necessary in our daily life unless you are an athlete training regularly (like over 10 hours a week, then you will need such drink to help you to recover before next training session.) If someone only visits the gym 3 times a week there's no need of such drink. You will just take in more sugar than your body needs. But shops always sell sports drinks together with coke and juice, as if they are ordinary refreshment. I wonder if people really understand what they are drinking?

i have not heard about this too.. but i guess there are chemicals -- but they could be safe at certain levels. remember they said these in sodas too? Where is that health article? would you share a link to us?
