Now Do You Understand?

The ad says " Test show that those that start drinking soda during that early formative period have a much higher chance of gaining acceptance and 'fitting in" during those awkward pre-teen and teen years."
So start your infant drinking soda? Did people REALLY believe this? Yes, they did, and parents would even put a little soda in the babies bottles! Now I know why it was harder for me to "fit in" as a teen!! My mom made us drink water. We were not allowed to have soda, only on special occasions.
It's no wonder that obesity is rampant in our society today, with increase of diabetes, heart disease, and a number of other health issues. They actually had an organization named "the Soda Pop Board of America"! the ad also says, Promotes active lifestyle, boosts personality and provides essential sugars!
Now I am beginning to understand. People do believe almost everything they read. Good thing we don't believe everything we read or hear today!! (yeah right)
