Fox News takes a look at childhood obesity, sugar intake, and caries

I saw an article this morning on where titled, "Fighting childhood obesity: Something to smile about." You can see the article BY CLICKING HERE.

Written by a dentist, Dr. Gerry Curatola, it's interesting to see people starting to get the link between overall health and oral health. Of course, we've known for years that sugary treats aren't good for the teeth ... but this is a good reminder to readers who need to put 2 and 2 together regarding sugar causing more weight and more cavities.

What do you think? Are people still not understanding the problems that an overload of sugar can cause?
