I've been pretty clear in many past threads in my position that the marketing of high added sugar beverages in particular and foods too is an issue and that better regulation of such is a part of the needed approach to impact childhood obesity rates. Some steps have been taken.

Your hyperbole is cute but the basic idea that controlling the access and exposure of children to things that will have significant long term adverse health impacts, in reasonable ways, is the rational position.

That said highly sweetened beverages are not as addictive as nicotine.
