Last Thursday, I received a message from a gentleman named Dorsol Plants about a public health campaign here in King County called Soda Free Sunday. They're asking people to visit www.sodafreesundays.com and make a pledge to go soda-free for one day per week.
Drinking sugar-sweetened beverages (SSBs), including soda, is one of the worst things you can do for your health. SSB consumption is probably one of the major contributors to the modern epidemics of obesity and metabolic dysfunction.
I imagind that most WHS readers don't drink SSBs very often if at all, but I'm sure some do. Whether you want to try drinking fewer SSBs, or just re-affirm an ongoing commitment to avoid them, I encourage you to visit www.sodafreesundays.com and make the pledge. You can do so even if you're not a resident of King county.
