The Fuming Fuji Says No to Sports Drinks

The Fuming Fuji is outraged at the marketing of toxic food, especially when it’s aimed at the small fry. This week, the Fuming Fuji has decided to have a serious problem with sports drinks.
But, Fuming Fuji, you ask, aren’t sports drinks really healthy, especially for child athletes?
The Fuming Fuji says no!
The claim: Sports drinks replace lost electrolytes…and other stuff.
The catch: Sports drinks are sugar water. Fuming Fuji admits sometimes they also have dye and flavorings.
The comeback: But don’t kids need energy drinks, especially if they play sports?
The conclusion: Yes, children who run frequent marathons should drink sports drinks. When I was a young seed, I scuttled uphill both ways in the snow to school every day, and sports drinks really got me through. But 1 in 3 children are obese. 1 in 3 will get diabetes. The Fuming Fuji says sports drinks are less useful than Paris Hilton.
The catchphrase: Diabetes will never be an Olympic sport.
