Vindication for Heavy Drinkers
I don't drink coffee (blasphemy for a Northwest dweller). I drink Diet Coke. Lots of it. I drink it when I'm thirsty, and/or I need the caffeine kick. It's been said to me by well meaning folks, that I should drink water instead. That the DC is unhealthy and causing me to be dehydrated.
Moderate caffeine consumption won’t dehydrate you and can actually help you reach your overall daily fluid intake.
So instead I'll have weak bones and kindney stones - but at least I'm not dehydrated.
