Got Rickets?

When you were a kid growing up during the 50s, 60s, 70s, or 80s, was your mom always telling you to drink your milk? Well, mom knew best. Because for the past few months I've been seeing online news reports that the once-defunct bone disease, rickets, is actually making a comeback in parts of the U.S. and the U.K. because kids are not drinking much milk nowadays. Seems the little, lazy unhealthy fatties much prefer drinking their soda and sports drinks and it's doing a number to their wee bones. Doctors claims to be seeing the disease make a comeback in alarming rates.

I just can't get over how stupid some people can be, especially when it comes to the health of their children. Rickets causes achy bones, swelling of the joints, and bowleggedness. Fortunately, the disease is curable - through proper diet and exercise. So, all you moms (and dads)...do your kids and yourselves a favor by going retro...drink milk! What a concept.
