cbs – Many in the health and medical fields have rallied for a reduction in youth consumption of sugary beverages such as soda. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta is one of those agencies calling for healthier drink options for children throughout the nation. CBS News is reporting that the results of a collaborative study between researchers from Columbia University, Harvard University and the University of Vermont indicated a significantly higher likelihood of physically hurtful or damaging behavior in children who drank the highest amounts of soft drinks. “We found a significant relation with soda consumption with the overall measure of aggression and with the three specific behaviors we felt were most indicative of aggression: destroying things belonging to others, getting into fights and physically attacking people,” wrote the authors in a written statement obtained by CBS News.
First of all allow me to pat myself on the back for the fantastic picture I found for this blog. How menacing is that kid? Definitely up to no good and it’s obviously the soda’s fault. A+ picture.
But let’s get down to facts — this is clearly just another ploy to smear the good folks of the soft drink industry. Big Soda has been unfairly catching shit for “causing diabetes” and “killing people” for decades now, when next to nobody points the finger at the real culprit — milk. Dairy farmers have had a free pass in this country for far too long. Their fatty, farty drink literally makes people shit their pants yet nobody calls them out. Just do the math. Which drink is responsible for cow slavery? Which drink has literally caused people to become physically intolerant? Which drink builds strong muscles and bones like some sort of steroid turning America’s kids into giant violent monsters?
Sure as shit ain’t soda.
