Sugary Drinks, Health Effects


Depicts the amount of sugar a woman drinks throughout her day with various sugary beverages as it builds up throughout the day, eventually culminating in her lying in a hospital bed , debilitated by diseases caused by her sugar intake.


VO: Does this look familiar? You have a breakfast juice (Text: breakfast juice 10 teasppons of sugar), the long ride to work energy drink (Text: energy drink 14 teaspoons of sugar), the tea time pick-me up (Text: ice tea 6 teaspoons of sugar) and a few glasses of fizzy drink over dinner (Text: two fizzy drinks 20 teaspooons of sugar). But that many sugary drinks a day adds up (Text: daily total 50 teaspoons of sugar), and all that sugar can bring on obesity which causes type 2 diabetes, heart disease and even some cancers. Are you drinking yourself sick? Make the change today. Go with water, soda water or milk instead. (Closing image: Water pitcher, two water bottles, and a carton of milk next to each other)
