Sweetened beverages are the largest source of sugar in the American diet. In fact, some researchers estimate that Americans consume nearly 40 gallons of sugar-sweetened beverages per capita annually, and evidence continues to grow that drinks like soda are not only ubiquitous, but addictive. 

Dr. Jennifer Falbe, who evaluated the effectiveness of the nation’s first “soda tax” in Berkeley, will join California Assembly Member Richard Bloom, who has sponsored similar statewide legislation, to discuss the marketing and addictive nature of sugar-sweetened beverages, the health risks associated with their consumption, and the story of California’s fight against Big Soda.
