Sugar sweetened beverages (SSB) are the largest source of added sugar in the U.S. diet.  On a typical day, 80% of youth and 63% of adults consume SSBs. 

The extra calories from SSBs have been associated with obesity, type 2 diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.  Fortunately, consumption of SSBs is a modifiable behavior, and reducing consumption can result in improved health.
