Obesity causes type 2 diabetes and its serious complications like heart disease, blindness and even amputations. If your kids drink one bottle of soda a day they're eating 50 lbs of sugar a year, 50lbs from just one soda a day (Text: 50lbs from just one soda a day). So don't drink yourself sick (Text: Don't drink yourself sick). Go with water, seltzer, fat free milk or unsweetened teas instead (Text: Go with water, seltzer, fat free milk or unsweetened teas instead). Text: Are you pouring on the pounds?
