Ditching sodas cuts childhood obesity

Filed under: Study — Tags: — @ April 23, 2004

A new study confirms that soda is a major contributer to childhood obesity. Researchers found that school children who were served more soda at lunch showed a greater risk for obesity than children who were served less. Soda’s are typically high in sugar and thus high in carbohydrates.

Coke’s new C2 and Pepsi Edge hope to solve this problem without compromising taste, something diet products don’t typically do.
