Having been traveling recently to warmer climates, and being in restaurants more than I’m used to, I see how little water people actually drink anymore.  I see a lot of soda drank by children and adults.  Coffee beverages and alcohol is popular as well, but not much water.  I recently read an article by Herb Joiner-Bey, N.D. talking about a parents influence over whether their children drink water.

Advertisers spend a huge budget to influence impressionable minds to choose ‘junk beverages’ which lack nutrition and are often loaded with sugar, salt, and calories.

“Water molecules move from a region where they are abundant to where they are scares.  Water quickly hydrates because when a person drinks water; its molecules are in higher concentration in the gastrointestinal tract than in the bloodstream, “says Bey.

Some people don’t like tap water or their water has elevated levels of lead, aluminum, fluoride or pesticides.  But soft drinks and many fruit juices contain acids that leach from cans and other containers and are filled with artificial colors and flavors which have been linked to allergies and ADHD.

Many health professionals are concerned that children’s high intake of soda’s and juice reduces the amount of milk that they take in “Bone mass is only laid down during the first 2 or 3 decades of life” says Bey.  If soda and juice replace their intake of milk, that can lead to problems down the line for their bone health.

Try to be a good role-model about drinking water vs. pop or sport drinks.  Don’t buy these drinks for your home, and make sure you provide milk for your family at meals.  We recently started drinking a non-fat milk that is fortified with other vitamins and has the consistency of 2% (my husband’s biggest complaint about fat free is it’s too watery).  Try different brand s (we use organic) till you find a brand you like.
