Good News for the Future of Obesity

A stunning piece of news: The nation's three biggest soft-drink companies announced that they're removing Coke, Pepsi, sweet iced teas and other such drinks from school cafeterias and vending machines. Have they finally come to their senses and realized they're on one of the top causes of the current obesity epidemic among children and record rates of diabetes, heart disease and the like? Nope: They're worried about lawsuits. Which is great news. (Thanks to Ben for pointing this out!)
