Guess Which Country Has The Biggest Increase In Soda Drinking

Monday, June 22, 2015

Soda is at the crossroads.

The U.S. is still a world leader in taking the pause that refreshes (and causes weight gain).

But soda drinking is flat or declining in the West. The reasons are many: Health consciousness. Bottled water. Energy drinks.
