You are correct that overall lifestyle is the root. However, diet is a huge part and most of these kids consume quite a bit of soda and other sugar sweetened beverages. I should also say that obesity is not the only problem especially with children. The other problem is diabetes.
Why, again, are you trying to make such a hardcore connection between obesity and sodas? Do you honestly think kids are all fat because of Coke? Inactivity would be my guess as the number one cause of obesity, not sodas.[/quote]
Who said I was making a hardcore connection? The purpose is to find other factors that contribute. We know how physical activity contributes. Your guess may not be far off.
