No More Mountain Dew

Thinking about the decrease in teenage pregnancy rates used to make me feel good. It made me believe that good policies really can make a difference. In fact, I'll even go so far to say that it shows bad policies can make a difference too. But after reading a post at Slate, I am more scared than I am encouraged. According to Liza Mundy, the decline might really be due to lower fertility among American males. I think before we ban fast food, we should ban Mountain Dew.
