If you have ever read the ingredients on the bottle/ can this is what it will read.

Good and bad. Water over Dew.

My opinion.

So, in my opinion, When it comes to something to drink, chose water. Water is always a safe bet. Mnt dew has too many unhealthy ingredients many of which should not be fda approved to be on a fountain beverage. Water is naturally occurring and refreshing. Im sure it has never rained soda from the sky nor will it ever. Soda is made by big conglomerates who want nothing but money. They could care less for your health, but why should you? Your health should be important to you. So next time you go to the store think before you buy. This is what is going into your body make it count.
