Sugar is a major cause of obesity and increases the risk of other health issues like diabetes. Soft drinks companies should be required to put a warning label on their products advising consumers of the health risks.
The key to a balanced lifestyle is to consume a variety of food and beverages in moderation. Many of our beverages contain sugar, which has calories. While sugar is fine in moderation, too much of it isn’t good for anyone. Like all food and beverages, soft drinks with sugar can be consumed as part of a balanced lifestyle as long as people don’t consume them to excess. People have been enjoying our beverages for 130 years because they love the taste. It’s important to us to make sure that consumers have a choice to help them manage their sugar and calorie intake. That is why we offer a variety of great tasting beverages with reduced, low or no sugar and calories. That’s also why many of our beverages come in small pack sizes. We also provide information on how much sugar and how many calories are in our beverages, so people can choose what makes sense for them and their families.
