Public health officials say sports, energy drinks “not actually healthier” than soda.

Vox (8/14, Lopez) reports that despite research suggesting that Americans are “quitting sugar-loaded soda,” added-sugar remains the “culprit” catalyst in “America’s obesity and diabetes epidemics.” The most recent Beverage-Digest has found that “while soda consumption is down, beverages like sports and energy drinks are on their way up.” Public health officials and experts agree that these “replacement beverages aren’t actually healthier than soda.”
