Teens and drinking. But the drinking we're talking about-- isn't alcoholic.
In the Journal "Injury Prevention," researchers link drinking soda with violent behavior in teenagers.
More than 18-hundred school students 14 to 18 years old, were asked how many sodas they drink in a week.
Those who drank five or more cans of soda a week also had carried a gun or a knife within the previous year.
Researchers say, the same teens showed a 9 to 15 % higher incidence of violence toward their siblings, their dates, and their peers.
