    When i was a kid, mom got two 8 packs of soda a week..... for a family of 8....

    Bottles got returned the next week when she got more.

    By the time I hit high school I bought a case of Mt Dew a week.

    I didn't get obese because I rode my bike everywhere and dug ditches for spending $$$

    Might be a lot of this ADHD is caused in part by kids wound up like a two dollar watch on sugar. Sugar in everything for breakfast, a soda in the backpack, and candy in the backpack, too.


    Exactly.

    Years ago I was in St Martin and a bottle of water was $2.00 and a bottle of Heineken was $1.00.

    Back in 73, I worked in Trinidad. You could get a local beer for .30 Cents and a 40 ounce bottle of White Star Rum that cost me $2.00. I don't have a clue what a bottle of water cost. Never drank the stuff.

    Some studies have found links between high carb diets and ADHD.

    Pediatricians have been suspecting that for years.

    That and kids or even humans for that matter aren't necessarily built to shut up and sit still for 8 hours at a time. Some of us can be trained to do so, but the rest have to be drugged.
