‘Signs are posted in the area stating that gunfire in the Pike National Forest is prohibited’.

How can we save a planet when we pay soft drink companies to kill us?
Maybe we can start by no longer calling them ‘soft drinks’.
Is obesity ‘soft’?
Is diabetes ‘soft’?
‘Scientists have keynoted the dangers of fizzy, sugary drinks, noting that they kill 184,000 adults every year’.
‘It further said those under 45 consume more artificially sweetened drinks and are more at risk of diabetes and obesity’.
‘The worldwide study is the first to estimate deaths and disability from diabetes, heart disease, and cancers caused by the drinks’.
‘It added that 133,000 deaths from diabetes, 45,000 deaths from cardiovascular disease and 6,450
deaths from cancer were caused by fizzy drinks, fruit drinks, energy drinks and sweetened ice teas in 2010′.
‘Dr Dariush Mozaffarian, Dean of the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University in Boston’ :
“It should be a global priority to substantially reduce or eliminate sugar-sweetened beverages from the diet”.
“There are no health benefits from sugar-sweetened beverages, and the potential impact of reducing consumption is saving tens of thousands of deaths each year.”
