Now if they will only do it here !

The Union of European Beverages Association has agreed to limit their 'youth advertising' and control sales in schools. The European Union has determined that obesity will become a significant health problem for its citizens and a drain on its health care resources. Its too bad this can't happen in the US. But our schools (most of them, anyway) seem to 'need' the money from the soda/pop machines. The school district my children go to have pop machines in the school but they do not allow you to drink it in the school. Then I learned last week they had an important meeting because the revenue from the machines were not meeting expectations. Hmmm, wonder why? Sure wish the schools would just teach the students how to think. I suppose I am asking too much.
