​​teen with outstretched handOur surroundings shape us in many ways. So it makes sense that few people would think sugary drinks are a health problem. After all, your community, from the corner store to the billboard next to your favorite park, is branded with advertising that encourages you to drink sugary drinks. Everywhere you turn, sodas, sport drinks, sweetened tea, coffee and energy drinks are being marketed to you and your community, with little information provided about the health effects that can occur from consuming them.

You probably don’t think twice about drinking sugary drinks. But here’s the truth: You are smarter than the biggest marketing firms. They aren’t paid to tell you about the consequences of drinking too many sugary beverages. They are paid to sell, sell, sell. Don’t buy their hype. Don’t buy their sugary drinks.
