We don't have a hope for Healthcare no matter how you cut it as long as we have cheep processed food.

Tons of sugar and preservatives without the benefits.

Isn't corn syrup glucose syrup with added fructose?

With a slightly different water content too?

So many if not all American dishes require sugar in some form, this search for the perfect sugar or fake sugar is detrimental, especially when all foods don't need sugar.

I mean honestly, food can taste good without so many additives.

How much do lemons cost in the US?

Here in the UK you can usually pick up loose lemons for about 30p each, a kilo of sugar for about £1, that's about 34 cents and $1.10 respectively, with a little effort you could make homemade lemonade for about half the price.

Carbonated water is usually cheap too, or there's a few methods of carbonation that can be cheap too... I make soda syrups now and then... I could give up a few recipes if you'd like?

$5, about £4.50 is crazy for a soda, I'd expect the best ingredients for that, that includes a bit vitamin C since lemons have about the same vitamin c content as oranges. Madness.

I can pick a 3L of Coca-Cola for about 2 1/2 - 3 dollars.

Im going to bet its to low to list due to the lemon juice being pasturized ... this prosess also removes alot of vitamin c from oarnge juice

A (very) brief Googling informed me that they use citric acid which contains no vitamin C. They can apparently say that it's all natural, even though the majority of people would probably disagree.

1) Life expectancy is getting longer.
2) Adjust the color on your TV.

Disinfo. Americans' life expectancy is now declining.

I'm not brainwashed and I'm not adjusting a damned thing.

i cannot understand how you let your government not label g.m.o,all those guns and you cannot even control your food.
your 1 big science experiment now ,eat your g.m.o with no option to avoid it.
and seems the lemonade is just as poisoned.
fight back don't just lay down and take it.

They use citric acid in lemonade which has zero calories and zero nutrients. Two reasons they use it instead of lemons. It's what gives lemons that sour taste. But believe it or not its not in a high quantity. The other reason is its a preservative. MeanING they don't need to add anything to increase its shelf life. Regular lemons are organic. And as such would require an expiration date one lemon about 6 percent is citric acid. They are about 64 percent vitamin c the rest is mostly water. And about 10 percent organic that's why they don't use real lemons organic material will rot. Without preservatives you get a shelf life of maybe two weeks. If they use real lemon's they will also add a preservative on addition to citric acid.

Bottom line processed food has to have a long shelf life. If you want real lemon aid your going to have to make it. Always been that way that's why it tastes so much better but only lasts about a week in the fridge. Ever drank old lemonade?? When the organic components start breaking down it tastes bad.

Y'know, you could always just make lemonade from scratch. Get some water, squeeze a lemon or 2 into the water, and then add sugar to taste. That same $5 would pay for several gallons of the real deal.

No offense, but I think the major problem here is the dependence on corporate products for simple wants & needs. It's like complaining that biscuits or bread from a store taste horrible and have all kinds of bad preservatives, yet you can make them yourself w/3 or 4 cheap ingredients.

i am so picky with my food. literally everything is GMO and manufacturers are not required to label them. 93% of soybeans are genetically engineered. they have roundup in their genes. sounds totally safe. let me shovel it down my gullet and hope i don't get cancer.

yeah , yeah....You know that type of numbers comes along every so often , right ? Been happening since the 70s least
From YOUR linked article -

It's the first decline in more than two decades

Do you see that ? In 20 years. That means the last drop was in the 90s . Before that , the 80s . And before that , the 70s
But the average is still going up . With TRUE measurements over the years
Just doom porn aimed at the US that foreigners love to hear.

And , that time also includes

unintentional injuries

Know how many more autos are on the road than there was 20 years ago ?
Now , game over.

The lesson here is that if you want something made real, you either need to make the effort to do it yourself from scratch or you need to look around for the local boutique isle at the store and pay for it.

You can find real lemonade, but it's going to cost more than $5 (or be in a small container with a price that works out to more per ounce than what you paid for Simply). I generally will buy Simply, but I know I'm not getting made from scratch and I wait until it's on sale 2/$5 to do it.

Learning to cook is the best option overall. It may not end up healthier, but at least you know what you put in your food.

I try to stay with natural products as much as possible, and I grow as much of my food as I can.

It really doesn't take that much more time to cook natural foods over prepackaged foods, and in a lot of cases the cost is less.

I have found a way to get even more bank from my buck by having a garbage garden. Most of the food we eat can be regrown if you buy organic produce.

I started doing this about eight years ago with pineapples. I had to give away about 20 plants this year because I had far more than I can handle, and they only produce a fruit every other year. We had a lot of rain this year so they have been big and sweet.

If we stop buying the chemical laden, preservative filled, and corn syrup filler products, the food industry will sale healthier items.

You don't need a lot of space and it can be done in containers. I have five and half acres, but I still do a lot of my gardening in containers. It makes it easier for an old lady to manage.

Before you knock it. Give it a try, I think you will be surprised.

My Mom, my sister, and I all have urban gardens with containers (though mine's more for testing different varieties & growing methods). It makes it easier to manage, especially since most of our food producers die off in the winter. I definitely agree w/your recommendation.

The fact there's no diarrhea sounds like a bonus to me. Listen, if you need to evacuate those bowels so badly, I suggest whole psyllium hulls with plenty of warm tap water. Use 2 ply.

What is the matter with you sir

Don't you understand?

You are drinking altered fake lemonade !

Who in the world said I need lemonade to evacuate bowls

Are you just having fun with me or what ?

Excuse Me.. Wasn't the point of Your thread to "rally the troops" You even mentioned Your detesting of Uncle Suga (pun intended) and then You argued? That is what "They" want; that is how 'They" continue to walk over "Us".. coincidentally, there are far more of "Us" than "Them" but We just aren't ready to arise from our slumber and doing the hunting part of hunting & gathering..

I'd also opine if You did follow a full on "Natural Diet" that You'd be regular as rain. I only mention this due to the bowel evacuation font.. That reads like 'regular #2' and not "Rim Painting"

One nice thing about Florida is that something is growing all year long.

My mother always say that in Florida if you let something stay in the ground long enough, it will grow into a tree. That is true of most bushes and weeds, not so lucky with foods stuffs. I have had some interesting things grow from the droppings from the birds that come to frolic and eat from my pond.

Birds are great sharers of food. They don't just drop seeds to the ground, they drop eggs from other ponds into my pond, making the varieties of fish in my pond quite interesting. They could have kept the alligator gar though.

I prefer containers for a lot of reasons but mostly because my land is weird. Stuff will grow great in one area and will do poorly in another, even when the dirt is richer and it should do better.

Most fruit trees grow very easily. Just don't think it is going to look like the fake stuff in the grocery stores.

Ah, you live in Florida ... that's how you can grow pineapple!

Not as lucky here. I live in Missouri. I don't think I could coax a pineapple out of the ground without a serious greenhouse.

It boggles my mind why anybody would by lemonade.

Why don't you just buy a bunch of lemons and make your own lemonade?

Its so easy. If you don't have one of those lemon squeezers just cut into quarter pieces lengthwise and squeeze with your fingers and throw like 3 pieces in a cup. All the good flavor is in the skin so leave them in the cup. Use Sugar in the Raw turbinado sugar and wala - all natural lemonade!

Have you tried coconut sugar? I like it because it is not as sweet.

I get my honey locally from a friend, but I often use the raw sugar and coconut sugar when sweetening larger quantities of drinks.

Another way to tarten up your drinks is to use organic vinegar that has the mother in it. It works great and it is really good for you.

Summertime, thirsty, tired of drinking warm tap water, so I cool off in local supermarket and I see Simply Lemonade (subdivision of Minute Maid co. )

Almost 2 L bottle whopping 5 bucks

Nice and cold, I don't usually spend money like that but I was gonna treat myself cause life sucks. I don't smoke or do drugs so I'll buy expensive lemonade.

Go home I start pouring glass after glass and start chugging it.

I notice that while the beverage is OK something isn't right, I take a look at the bottle again and ingredients, looks pretty damn good,

Not from concentrate
Has sugar but also a ton of real lemon juice.
They even threw in lemon pulp

Awesome ....... Right ?

But I don't get it, something in the taste is off.

My eyes glance over listing for calories, proteins, fats, vitamins minerals

ZERO vitamin C

Not a significant source of vitamins

Whaaaat ?

After drinking whole bottle in under 4 minutes, I should have gotten so much vit c I should have gotten diarrhoea


Those of you who believe that future will be awesome with more technology and all that, you are completely wrong.

I guarantee you future will be even worse than the present for majority of people

The rich, they'll be fine with real lemonade

You and your kids ?

No sorry, your life will suck fake lemons

And just so we are clear. I hate American Government, I hate most American companies, and I hate plenty of American people.

I've built up hate over the years

"Hate is strong with this one"

Call me a hater
I call myself a realist in the mirror.

What more proof do you need.

From fake lemonade to sabotaging and watering down Trump's vision for America at every turn.

What more proof do you need ?

Did CIA and NSA take over production of lemonade now too ?

Well, there was a real lemon in a Wal-Mart plastic shopping bag on the sidewalk about 400 feet from Wal-Mart today. Saw it when leaving.

Someone who bought that lemon dropped the bag. I didn't pick it up because I hoped the person would retrace their steps and find it. I could have scooped it up to make a little glass of lemonade, but didn't. It wanted me to take it. Like it was an intelligent lemon.

So lemonade with no vit c is being made and consumed and replaced with AI. So there ya go.
