Have a headache? You might just need water

A recent study showed that more than half of American children aren’t drinking enough water, and are suffering the consequences of dehydration. Richmond residents are part of a years-long campaign to get people off sugary drinks and into the water habit. “I would drink soda because I thought sodas and juice were basically more flavorful versions of water. Also, they were addictive; I’ve been drinking them my whole life. Soda basically was the only thing that quenched my thirst.” Ronvel Sharper’s commentary is on Richmond Pulse.
