Just don’t Dew it?

It’s good to see that if the Government isn’t going to do anything about…um…anything, at least the former President is getting some results in something. Today, the Clinton Foundation finished getting Coke, Pepsi and Cadbury to agree to stop selling soda and other sugary drinks to schools. There will be no more soda at all in elementary and middle schools and only diet soda in high schools. Bloomberg News (I don’t know if this applies to Central Florida schools.)

I know the kids are going to whine about it, but that’s just tough. In an age when we’re spending billions to combat the results of our overeating, overstressing, overeverything lifestyles, the last thing we need to be doing is encouraging our youth to suck down Mt. Dew instead of milk, fruit juice or water. Maybe then we won’t lag behind Great Britain in health!
