Beverages Add Uncounted Calories to US Diet

June 15, 2009: 11:32 AM EST
Research pointing to the link between drinking sweetened calorific beverages and negative health impacts was to be reviewed at a workshop in Boston June 15. Numerous studies suggest “an upward trend in the consumption of sweetened caloric beverages combined with an accelerated shift toward inactivity, poor diet and obesity”. Americans concerned about weight control should take their consumption of sweetened drinks into account, says Barry Popkin, PhD, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. Soft drinks contribute about 10 percent of the calories in the US diet, and it seems that people are drinking more while at the same time there has been no reduction in food intake, and little change in water consumption.
