Apr 1, 2006

U.K. researchers say there is an association between obesity and the consumption of soft drinks.

“It has been found that children who consume these drinks have a higher energy intake and are more likely to become overweight,” they write.

They add that in the United Kingdom, a school-based initiative focusing on reducing the consumption of these drinks has also been effective in preventing a further increase in obesity.

“Initiatives focusing on reducing the consumption of these drinks may help to prevent a further increase in childhood obesity,” write the researchers.
