Why is so much sugar placed in drinks?

  • Caffeine is bitter. Most people address this by adding sugar to caffeinated beverages.
  • Straight coffee (no milk, no sugar) is zero-calorie and sugar-free, but bitter so it is sweetened to improve flavor.
  • Energy Drinks contain lots of sugar, particularly those that are juice/soda combinations. Rockstar Juiced and Punched are very high in sugar.

Patients perspective on Doctors

When the death knocks upon the door, the doctor is looked upon as a God

When he accepts the challenge, he is looked upon as an Angel

When he cures the patient, he is looked upon as a Common man

When he asks for the fee, he is looked upon as a Devil
