Remove Soda Machines from Schools

I suggest to make it a condition for federal funding that public schools do not serve or have soda machines available on the school grounds. The USA is facing a obesity epidemic. One of the leading causes is the amount of sugar in Soda. The medical costs are stagering to treat all the people with diseases that are caused by obesity, such as diabetes, heart conditions, and strokes. This would save millions from Gov't programs such as medicaide, federal health insurance, and basic health care, used to treat people with disease caused by obesity.

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
