Girls, Milk and Soda: Is Soda the New Tobacco? A 10 Year Study.

Soda Targeted in Fight Against Obesity
Long ago, we wondered whether sugar is the new tobacco…with government subsidies to farm and store it.
February’s issue of Pediatrics wonders that differently: it reports a study of 2300 8- 9 year old girls who kept 3 day food logs (free at www.drjohnlapuma.com, under Private Programs) annually for 10 years.
Milk drinking dropped by 25%. Pop drinking tripled over those 10 years..
And girls who consumed the most pop were heavier than those who consumed the least. No other beverage was close.
Obesity trends are graphic state maps of obesity
Get the soda out of the house, and get active!
