esearch journal #2: Gatorade


Counter Story:

According to the Gatorade website, Gatorade Prime contains carbs and B vitamins to “sustain your body’s ability to burn additional carbohydrates when taken 15 minutes before competition.” The Gatorade Perform is said to make athletes performing at their highest. The Gatorade Recover is said to reduce thirst and replenish the body. All these things sound like they help your body to perform at the maximum and keep the body going.

What does the website descriptions not tell you? They don’t tell you that Gatorade causes erosion of teeth. From a research done in University of Iowa, it is found that Gatorade is more corrosive than Red Bull and Coke. This research shows that Gatorade is not better than soft drinks.
