11:24 pm
hazards? not the least of which is a higher risk for obesity, diabetes and heart disease. now, new data from the cdc show that the trend may be going down. in a 2013 survey, 1 in 3 americans reported drinking at least one sugar-containing drink per day. if true, a sign of a positive trend? since previous research suggests up to half of americans drink one of those sugary drinks daily. the new survey also found that men drink more sweet drinks than women. breaking it down by age, 43 percent of young adults have at least one per day. their elders? only 19 percent. more research will be needed to confirm this trend. but with national dietary guidelines recommending that only 10 percent of our total daily calories come from added sugars? it may be a good time to keep trading that soda for a sugar-free alternative. with this medical minute,
