Nearly 1/2 of Americans consume sugary or artificially sweetened beverages, like soda on a daily basis.

The average soda drinker is consuming more than 2 ½ glasses per day, which is the equivalent of more than 10 grams of sugar each day!

One can of soda per day adds up to more than 31 pounds of sugar consumed per year! (Source: Center for Science in the Public Interest)

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, drinking sugary and sweetened beverages is linked to:

  • Poor diet quality
  • Weight gain
  • Type 2 diabetes in adults

According to data published by the Nutrition Source at Harvard School of Public Health:

  • People who consume sugar drinks regularly – 1 to 2 cans per day or more – have a 26% greater risk of developing type 2 diabetes than people who rarely drink sodas.
  • A large research study showed that soda drinkers had a 20% higher risk of having a heart attack as compared to others who rarely drank sugary drinks.

Staying Hydrated Matters

Water is essential for life and comprises more than 50% of our body weight. Every cell in your body requires fluid to transport nutrients and keep us alive. In addition, fluid intake and maintaining a healthy hydration status helps to regulate our body temperature. Think about it, nearly every organ in your body requires water for proper functioning:

  • Kidneys
  • Skin
  • Brain
  • Heart
  • Digestive Tract
  • Muscles and Joints
