Obesity Society Weighs In On Impact Of Sugar-Sweetened Drinks

April 23, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
Sugar-sweetened beverages are contributing to the obesity epidemic in the U.S., particularly among children, the Obesity Society said in an official report based on a review of current research. The society recommended that children should minimize drinking sugary beverages and adults should reduce or avoid sugary drinks as part of an overall strategy to reduce calories. Evidence from studies shows that individuals with a higher BMI consume more sugary beverages than leaner individuals, and decreasing their consumption “may reduce overall calorie intake and help individuals with obesity or overweight reach healthy weight goals”.
