I haven't seen that program, but I'm willing to wager that the issue was probably the sodium in the club soda. Personally, I think that, in moderation, and if you don't have hear problems, club soda would be fine. My late father-in-law had a serious heart condition and was not allowed to drink our tap water or club soda because of the salt content.

From Wikipedia (because it's already explained there):

Club soda may be identical to plain carbonated water or it may contain a small amount of table salt, sodium citrate, sodium bicarbonate, potassium bicarbonate, potassium sulfate, or disodium phosphate, depending on the bottler. These additives are included to emulate the slightly salty taste of homemade soda water. The process can also occur naturally to produce carbonated mineral water, such as in Mihalkovo in the Bulgarian Rhodopes.

Carbonated water

Club soda is also defined as water charged with carbon dioxide. I have made my own C02 charged seltzer water with my vintage siphon, and it's rather fun. Plus, I can flavor it any which way I want to. Finding the cartridges can be a challenge, though.
