Fighting fat — If you're watching your weight, go with the sweetened iced tea over that soft drink. Researchers at the University of Cincinnati have found evidence that suggests fructose, the sweetener in soft drinks and many other foods, actually adds more body fat than drinks sweetened with plain sugar. Matthias Tschop, from University of Cincinnati's Obesity Research Center, says fructose may alter the body's metabolism in a way that prompts it to store body fat.
