CDC: 1 in 4 high schoolers drink soda every day
ATLANTA (AP) — A new study shows one in four high school students drink soda every day.
The national survey found that teens drink water, milk and fruit juices most often. But a quarter say they have at least one soda each day.
For all sweetened beverages, the figure is closer to two-thirds when other sugary drinks like Gatorade are counted along with soda. That seems to be less than in the past when more than three-quarters reported drinking a sugary drink each day.
The survey of more than 11,000 teens was conducted last year. The results were reported Thursday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
