A 31-year-old member asked:

Is drinking de-caf iced tea with sweet n low any different than drinking water, you think?

Yes.: Anytime you add something to water, your body is going to absorb something other than hydrogen and oxygen. Decaf iced tea with sweet n low is probably harmless, but it is definitely not just hydrogen and oxygen.
