Any one-shot powdered-drink-mixes for water bottles that won't give me cancer?
Right, so, I like flavored drinks with my meals when possible. Soda's fucking expensive and horrible for you. Juice is fucking expensive and usually laden in sugars anyways. Kool-Aid and the like works decently enough at home, but short of taking a bottle of the stuff with me, doesn't really help me when I'm at work or out and about or whatever.
So I've been looking into the various little pocketable one-shot drink mixes that you pour into a water bottle, shake up, then chug while jogging on Mount Everest and outpacing a bear with teeth made of Olympic gold medals. Or something to that effect.
Issue: the things are all loaded with various artificial sweeteners. And a while back, everyone was talking about how those give you cancer. I'd rather not have cancer, all things considered.
So...Are there any of these things out there that won't give me cancer? Or at least one that'll give me the least cancer?
Health related infos: I weigh somewhere in the vicinity of 140-160 pounds, am somewhat active(work on my feet and cycle the mile and a half or so to work most days), and wouldn't be having more than one of these packets in a day, somewhere around 3-5 days a week.
