To the Editor:

Be aware of the soda pandemic. One can a day equals 12 oz. or 340 grams of sugar. So one can a day equals 15 or so pounds of body fat per year.

Diet soda causes obesity. Soda increases the risk of osteoporosis. Soda causes kidney stones. Soda is addictive. The annual cost is huge. Soda causes tooth decay.

It is ill-advised to give soda to children. Developing bones, teeth, hormones, organs, disposition, and who knows what else yet can be affected.
