This is pretty awesome. A hospital in West Virginia has eliminated sugary drinks!
"Every diabetic costs the health care system $15,000 to $20,000 a year. The diabetics are being diagnosed earlier. They are getting it earlier because of the food and when you add that cost up over a lifetime, it's completely unsustainable," said Mark Cucuzzella, Professor of Family Medicine at West Virginia University.
I can only hope we see this trend continue. I think we all have a responsibility to be good examples of health and fitness to those around us. Hopefully, as more people join CrossFit or other all-encompassing health activities, these messages will make it into the mainstream.
