Half Of Americans Quench Their Thirst With Sugary Beverages Each Day

August 31, 2011: 09:54 AM EST
Half of Americans drink sugar drinks – defined as fruit drinks, sodas, energy drinks, sports drinks, and sweetened bottled waters, but not diet drinks – each day, according to a report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. A quarter of the U.S. population consumes at least 200 kcal of sugar drinks, equivalent to more than one 12-oz can of cola. Other findings: males consume more than females; teens and young adults consume more than other age groups; black children and adolescents consume more sugar drinks than Mexican- American kids; low-income people consume more sugar drinks in relation to their overall diet than those with higher income; and most sugar drinks consumed away from home come from stores, rather than schools or restaurants.
