Things you should never put in your drink

With all the tough decisions we face in life, your beverage should be a simple one. Unfortunately, that’s not always an easy choice, either. 

Say you choose coffee in the morning, water during the day, and tea at night. Those are all perfectly fine choices, but there’s still some pretty shocking ways you might be not only ruining your diet, but opening yourself up to risk of severe illness and, in one case, even injury — from a drink!

It’s all down to what you put in your drink. A slice of lemon or a wedge of lime might seem harmless, it’s fruit, after all. You’ve probably heard good things about apple cider vinegar, and you may have even made the switch from sugar to artificial sweetener, all with the best of intentions. But there are pitfalls to all of these — and other drink add-ins, and knowing what they are might help you decide whether or not you really, really need those additions to your beverage. Sometimes, you should just let the drink stand on its own, and here’s why.
