Healthy Monday – Avoid Soft Drinks

Posted Jun 21 2010 8:05am

Each Monday, a simple health tip and challenge will be posted as part of Healthy Monday .  Healthy Monday is a public health initiative founded in 2005 in association with Johns Hopkins University, Syracuse University, and Columbia Univerisity. 

Their mission includes ending “chronic preventable disease in the U.S. by offering people and organizations a weekly prompt to start and sustain healthy behaviors.”

“The fact that soft drinks offer energy with little accompanying nutrition, displace other nutrient sources, and are linked to several key health conditions such as diabetes is further impetus to recommend a reduction in soft drink consumption.”

Effects of Soft Drink Consumption on Nutrition and Health: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis

The Tip: Avoid soda and other soft drinks.  Not much good comes from them. 

The Challenge: Drink water instead of sodas or other soft drinks today.  See how it goes. 

Have a happy and a healthy Monday!
