Sports Drinks nonsense – stick to tap water this summer

Sports Drinks nonsenseThe promoters of these high carbohydrate drinks would have us believe that drinking the correct fluids in ever increasing volumes is as important to our health as the exercise itself. BMJ.com exposes the bad science and misleading advertising here. When marketing and bad science combine to create a multi billion dollar industry the only looser is the consumer.

Our advice is to drink if you are thirsty, avoid sugary sports drinks (especially if exercising for weight loss) and go enjoy your run !
