For years sodas have been linked to obesity and diabetes in kids; with ingredients like phosphoric acid and sugar it is no wonder why.

Now a new study published in the Journal of Pediatrics shows, these popular drinks could be causing your kids to show signs of violence with other children. A team from Columbia University surveyed three thousand mothers, all with five year old children.

The research found that out of this group of kids, nearly half of them had one soft drink a day, some of them drinking up to four. The research also went on to find that the more sugary sodas they had, the more destructive and violent the kids became.

Rachel - get over it - kids are violent because they are mean and ugly. I grew up in the North of England 60 years ago and we did not get to drink soda except rarely, (Rationing after WWII) and that was usually lemonade. But there were violent kids who didn't give a flip about anyone or anything. So get real, kids are violent because they are mean. SHUT UP RACHEL! Do not give these parents and kids an opportunity to blame their behavior on something else. ps: I am also a Special Ed teacher.

What stupid bilge.

Now maybe sugar, being a quick energy, gets kids to get up and do things but violent?

If that is so, why don't donuts do that?

Well? I bet the pointy headed liberals don't have an answer for that!
