The Dangers of Sugar-Packed Beverages

Skip the sugary drinks and get healthier.

Research at the Harvard School of Public Health has tied sugary drinks to an epidemic of obesity in the United States.  The average 12-ounce can of soda contains 10 teaspoons of sugar, and the average teenage boy consumes nearly three cans of sugary drinks a day.

One of the primary sources of calories for Americans is sugar. More than 180,000 deaths worldwide in 2010 were linked to a high intake of sugar-laden drinks, including 25,000 deaths in the United States.  According to the CDC, Childhood obesity has more than doubled in children and tripled in adolescents in the past 30 years.

Energy drinks have become massively popular in recent years especially among athletes.  The sugar content in most energy drinks ranges from 21 grams to 34 grams per 8 ounces, and can come in the form of sucrose, glucose, or high fructose corn syrup.  And the high sugar and caffeine content will actually only give you a short-lived energy boost, leaving you with a major crash after “the high.”
