Definitely an interesting question. Thank you for the informative response, Maryann!

Water > Club Soda > Cola ;)

Hello Anonymous,

Club soda is not as healthy as water.

It is water that has been artificially carbonated but contains sodium bicarbonate as well as sodium chloride and potassium sulfate. The added sodium may not be good for a person who must limit her sodium intake. Club soda is a healthier choice than cola which contains caffeine and sugar.
