A Sip of Soda: How Soft Drinks Impact Your Health

Diet is like religion, it is not one-size-fits-all.  And as controversies swirl over how to handle the obesity epidemic, as individuals, we are quickly learning that there are a lot of little things that we can do that will make a big change in the health of families.  And that as we take these baby steps, these changes add up.

And with recent reports suggesting that even a 64 calorie reduction a day could go a long way to reducing the escalating rates of obesity, maybe it's as easy to do as ditching a can of soda.  If you need some inspiration, try the infographic below.

This is so simple any person with half a brain should be able to comprehend. I just don't know how to get these points across to the people I care about who insist on drinking soft drinks and giving them to their children.
