Crazy Stat: No. 1 Source of Calories for Americans
Via NY Times article: Soda: A Sin We Sip Instead of Smoke? By Mark Bittman
"Sugared beverages are the No. 1 source of calories in the American diet, representing 7 percent of the average person’s caloric intake, according to government surveys, and up to 10 percent for children and teenagers. These calories, they point out, are worse than useless — they’re empty, and contribute to a daily total that is already too high."
I knew they were high, but I had no idea they were the number 1 source. Crazy!
