Did you know?

“On average, we each consume over 55 gallons of soft drinks a year. The U.S. Department of Agriculture reports that half of all Americans drink sodas daily, and most sodas consumed are not the diet type. At 10 teaspoons of sugar in each 12-ounce can of soda (rounded down for diet soda consumption), the rough math yields about 40 pounds of sugar per person per year, or about 30 percent of the total added sugar consumed per person each year. Many young people consume much more.”

“During the meteoric rise in adult and childhood obesity and diabetes in the last thirty-five years, the consumption of sodas has roughly tripled.”
