The answer, of course, is found in their diets: children and teenagers are consuming vast quantities of soft drinks. Those soft drinks are highly acidic, and the body strips minerals from the skeletal system in order to buffer the acidity of the soft drinks.
As a result, drinking soft drinks leads to decreased bone density and more forearm fractures. It also results in kidney stones, diabetes and obesity. In fact, the widespread consumption of soft drinks and other junk foods is the #1 cause of chronic disease in our nation.
If you have kids and you don't want them breaking their bones, don't let them touch soft drinks and other forms of refined white sugar.
