In Brief: Half of America Drinks Soda Daily

daily soda by glassAlmost half of Americans report drinking at least a glass of soda every day, with one of every five Americans drinking two or more, according to a new Gallup poll conducted last month.

The poll also found that two-thirds of Americans drink at least one cup of coffee a day, a figure that remains unchanged from a previous 1999 survey. This Gallup poll was the first measure of daily soda consumption.

In all, 48 percent of Americans surveyed said they drank at least one soda per day; 7 percent said they drink four or more glasses daily. The poll did not differentiate between sugary and diet sodas.

The poll is based on telephone interviews with approximately 1,000 adults throughout the country.

AICR’s expert report and its updates link drinking sugary sodas to being overweight and obese, which are linked to increased risk of seven cancers.
