VO: Does this sound familiar? You drink a juice in the morning (Text: 450 ml of juice: 10 tablespoons of sugar), an iced tea at noon (Text: 650 ml of iced tea: 9 tablespoons of sugar), and then some soda with lunch and dinner (Text: 600 ml of soda: 12 tablespoons of sugar, two glasses of 400 ml of soda: 17 tablespoons of sugar). It may look harmless but all these sugary drinks in one day add a lot of extra sugar (Text: Total in one day: 48 tablespoons of sugar). That can cause serious health problems including obesity, which causes diabetes, heart disease and some cancers. Do not hurt yourself by drinking sugary drinks. Better to drink water, sparkling water, low fat milk or tea without sugar (Text: Better to drink water, sparkling water, low fat milk, or tea without sugar). Take care of your life. Take it Seriously. (Closing Text: Take care of your life. Take it seriously)
