Sugar Intake

The average 12-ounce (360 mL) can of soda contains about 40 grams of refined sugars. That's 10 teaspoons of pure sugar-calories. Would you ever eat 10 teaspoons of sugar at once?

Sugar & Obesity

Diets high in refined sugars can promote obesity, which increases the risks of diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, and heart disease. Sugary soft drinks also promote tooth decay.

Recommended Sugar Intake

For comparison, the U. S. Department of Agriculture recommends that a person who consumes a 2,000 calorie diet should not consume more than about 40 grams of refined sugars per day.

Soft Drinks & Caffeine

Coca-Cola, Pepsi-Cola, and many other popular soft drinks contain caffeine. Caffeine is a mildly addictive stimulant drug. It's crazy to add a stimulant to a beverage consumed in such vast quantities by millions of children.

Sugar Intake - Soft Drinks & Calories

A typical soft drink (12 ounces; 360 mL) provides about 150 calories. Liquid foods like soft drinks appear to promote obesity more than solid foods, and obesity is a huge and growing problem.

Soda Drinks & Diet Nutrition

Drinking soda pop can push more healthful beverages - such as water, fruit juice, or lowfat milk - out of your diet. That means you won't get the calcium and other nutrients that you need to build your bones and strengthen your body.

Sugar Intake - Fruit Drinks

The Coca-Cola Co., PepsiCo, Procter & Gamble and other companies market non-carbonated drinks that seem to be rich in fruit juice (and nutrients), but in reality are basically sugary water. Coca-Cola Co.'s Fruitopia and Hi-C, for example, contain only 5% to 10% fruit juice. But they contain about as much sugar as carbonated soda pop. Don't be fooled by the vitamin C or other nutrients added to these sugary products - they're still basically high-sugar.
