Soft drinks to blame: Mongolian children suffer

The average per capita consumption of soft drinks in Mongolia is 22.8 liters per year! So says the Mongolia’s National Centre for Public Health (NCPH).

The consumption of carbonated soft drinks is high in Mongolia, especially among children. Drinking soft drinks causes many health complications including tooth decay, diabetes, obesity and osteoporosis. Of these, tooth decay has become one of the most prevalent chronic diseases among Mongolian children.

According to the Ministry of Health, 80-90 percent of Mongolian children aged from two to 12 suffer from dental decay.
