    On a calorie basis, that’s 1/2 a week.

    No, ERS reports are not dietary consumptions; they are economic reports of the amounts of food produced — they do not take into account waste, exports, etc. Food activists just want people to believe these figures represent what we eat.

    this is far too much sugar to consume especially when you take into account the rest of the carbohydrate intake from every other thing people put in their mouths,not just the soda. is there an wonder why illness is at such epedemic rates world wide! you would have to be surprised if it were otherwise.

    I probably drink that much diet soda a week. I’m a diet soda addict.
