"Mexicans are getting fatter faster than anyone else in the world." Mexicans also consume more soft drink per capita than any other country in the world. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2012-07-24/obesity-developing-world/4133126 (watch from 9:48 onwards)

The developing world is Coca Cola's next frontier. In Australia and other developed countries, we are becoming more aware of what these drinks do to our health - http://aca.ninemsn.com.au/article.aspx?id=8516908. Also in the developed world, soft drink companies are looking for alternatives, why? Because as health aware consumers, our buying power is clearly demonstrating that they MUST - http://www.usatoday.com/news/health/wellness/story/2012-07-26/soda-formulas/56509190/1.

Now, as health aware consumers we must also use our buying power to fight for those without the facts, without the buying power and without an alternative source of hydration - ie clean drinking water!

These children are malnourished, becoming addicted and the long-term health affects on their bodies (not to mention their dental health) is yet to be fully realised.
