Sweet drinks tied to kids' weight gain

MSNBC (article)

Kids that are slightly over weight have twice the risk of becoming overweight if they drink sweet drinks twice a day. Normal kids have no effect. fat kids need to stay away from sweet drinks, for skinny kids it doesn't matter. Sounds logical to me...

"One Chicago Head Start program banned juice last year as part of an anti-obesity effort after finding that one out of five of its students was obese."

What the crap! We don't even know what double the risk means. It could mean 2 out of 100000 become overweight instead of 1 out of 100000.

The world is stupid... and at the moment Chicago is leading the way.
