    Why do they tell you to drink 7up when you're sick when soda is bad for you?

    I think water is better, but a lot of people won't drink much water. It's better to drink a clear soda than drink too little.

    Apparently, they suggest drinking 7up to add sugar to your system during an illness. I would assume as a quick fix for low blood sugar since some people tend not to eat very much if any when they are ill. However, the natural sugar from a piece of fruit would have the same effect and be much healthier. I know that drinking Ginger Ale is recommended because ginger is said to soothe an upset stomach.

    7-up is reccomend because the carbonation can sooth an upset stomach... anything crabonated is good for this... but anything with caffine will dehydrate you.
