Softdrinks To Obesity

Study shows that children and teens consuming sugary softdrinks are putting themeselves at risk of obesity. For each softdrink consumed, there is a 50 percent risk of the child becoming obese. Dr. Dewitt Williams said that young people who drink to much softdrink other than water, milk or fruit juice are depriving their bodies of much needed nutrients and are setting themeselves up for future problems. He further stared that risk of obesity is unrelated to food intake of children, their frequency of exercise, or length of time they spend watching tv. Sorftdrinks contain caffiene and phosporus which represents a greater risk for bone fractures and osteoporosis in later life especially among teenage girls.
