Half of people in US consume sugary drinks daily

A new report from the CDC found that half of the people in the United States drink a sugary beverage per day, while 1/4 consume at least 200 calories in the form of sugary drinks daily. Males aged 12-19 consume the most sugary drinks, taking in about 273 calories in their drinks daily. People with higher incomes drank fewer sugary drinks than those in lower incomes - Mexican Americans and Blacks drink more sugary beverages than whites. 48% of calories from the drinks are consumed away from home, with most of those purchased at stores.
