This is not the case with Scarlett Johansson’s SodaStream commercial, so what gives?
This is for all those people currently on medical schemes and enjoying out-of-hospital benefits. It’s important to educate yourself on this stuff, because more often than not, you may find yourself having to pay for scans and checkups out of your own pocket.

For astronauts, eating a simple pizza is out of the question, relegated to the memory of their good times back on Earth.
