Got a fighting-prone 5-year-old? You might want to consider cutting back on the little one?s soda intake, as a new study has linked young kids? aggressive behavior with soft-drinks consumption.

A recent flurry of research has focused on adult soda drinkers, pointing to increased risks of stroke, obesity, kidney damage, and high blood pressure. But this study, published Friday in the Journal of Pediatrics, focused on 5-year-old soda drinkers and behavioral problems, finding that those who drank four or more pops daily were more than twice as likely to attack others, fight with them or destroy their property.

?We found that the child?s aggressive behavior score increased with every increase in soft drinks servings per day, which was surprising,? lead researcher Shakira Suglia, an assistant professor of epidemiology at the Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health, told Yahoo! Shine. While previous studies have linked soft drinks to violent behavior in adolescents, she added, the goal here was to look at their effect on younger kids.

Yep. You need to conclusively prove it. You can't just assert it. 

 

 

 

Kids shouldn't drink soda. It has no health benefits, it's loaded with artificial crap and contains a ton of sugar.
