Kids And Soda

Do you let your kids drink soda?  How much?  When I read about this latest study, I admit, I wondered what else 'this type' of parent wasn't doing for their child that could be hurting their GPA.
It says, there's a link between health risks and academic achievement, according to  Health and Education leaders in Washington.
Student's who drink two or more sodas a day are twice as likely to be getting C's, D's and F's in school.
Other things like watching three or more hours of TV, not eating breakfast and not getting enough exercise also contribute to poor grades.
So, like I started off - to me, it sounds like there's a lot more negative behavior going on, then simply too much soda.
What do you think?
