  • I always drink water- with a glass of wine or beer once a day. Pop or soda is sooooooooo bad for you either diet or regular. Here is why ( in case you wanted to know). All soda has phosphoric acid in it - that is what makes it bubbly. When that acid enters your body, your body says "WHOA" I don't like this acid- I can't do my normal functions bathed in this acid. DO something QUICK. So the body, takes calcium from your bones and teeth to neutralize this acid so that it can go back to working like it should. If this neutralization process ( removing calcium from your bone) continues then eventually - in a few years- maybe even less than 10 years, you will develop soft bones and osteoporosis. You will break your bones very easily. This is something that happened frequently to old ladies- now it is happening to young people. I know- I work in the Emergency Room as a nurse.

  • I prefer water and pop as a very occasional treat with pizza or parties. I have major guilt over drinking pop so it's not fun to drink it.

  • Pop, more specifically Coca Cola. I'm from the midwest too and hadn't heard someone call it pop in who knows how long.
