Soda bans in schools did not limit sugar consumption.
State laws that ban soda in schools — but not other sweetened beverages — have virtually no impact on the amount of sugary drinks middle school students buy and consume at school, a new study shows.
The study, which looked at thousands of public school students across 40 states, found that removing soda from cafeterias and school vending machines only prompted students to buy sports drinks, sweetened fruit drinks and other sugar-laden beverages instead. In states that banned only soda, students bought and consumed sugary drinks just as frequently at school as their peers in states where there were no bans at all.
NANNYSTATE LIBS ARE PUSHY BOSSY EGOMANIACS WHO THINK THEY KNOW BETTER THAN YOU HOW YOU SHOULD LIVE.
BUT BECAUSE THEY REALLY DON'T - (AND BECAUSE NOBODY BUT YOU CAN), THEIR UTOPIANIST SCHEMES ALWAYS FAIL.
WHEN THE PEOPLE REBEL AGAINST THE NANNYSTATERS, THE LIBS ARE EITHER THROWN OUT OR DRAG EVERYONE DOWN THE ROAD TO SERFDOM.
ULTIMATELY, THE PEOPLE ALWAYS WIN; THE HUMAN SPIRIT IS INDOMITABLE.
ALL THE LEFT CAN DO IS MAKE THE COST IN TREASURE AND BLOOD VERY HIGH.
