Soft Drinks: They contain 10 teaspoons of sugar

How much sugar do you put in your tea or coffee, if atall?

How much sugar do you put in your tea or coffee, if at all? One teaspoon? Two? If you're right there on the edge, it might be three. Well, every time children down a standard 330ml can of some soft drink, they're drinking 10 teaspoonfuls of sugar, a new study has discovered.

The sugar-free version is not a healthy option, either, because that's full of aspartame, which, as previous E-news reports have revealed, is the world's best ant poison.

A bold soul at the University of Bristol has called for a health promotion campaign, which could point out to children and parents the health hazards of most soft drinks, he suggests. That should make significant inroads into the problem.
