Government Limitations

Should the government limit the size of sugary drinks? With obesity lingering greatly especially in the southern United States, sugary drinks and sodas are increasingly being consumed effective in sales. Obesity is a major health issue that leads to the risk of cancer, artery disease, diabetes, as well as early economic and mortality costs.  So what role do sugary drinks play in this dangerous game? Well for one, sugary drinks are turned into fat in your liver. These large, unnecessary amounts of sugar cancel out any nutrition the drink may have! Many Americans that learn the grotesque facts of these drinks tend to stray away from them. However many are unaware of the harmful effects, so continue to consume them daily.  It is important to be aware of and understand the negative effects it will have on your future and present life.
