Blake Poll: What’s Your Favorite Drink? [POLL]
USA TODAY reported some interesting news recently that Water is now America’s favorite drink. The reports come from surveys across the nation. So Blake wants to know if Lubbock prefers water, too?
For more than two decades, soda was the No. 1 drink in the U.S. with consumption peaking in 1998 at 54 gallons a year, according industry tracker Beverage Digest. Americans drank just 42 gallons a year of water at the time.
That’s a scary statistic considering the increase along with it in diabetes, obesity, and other poor nutrition related diseases. Thankfully, America has turned a corner and realized that WE HAVE THE POWER TO CHOOSE!!!
USA TODAY says that now:
Americans now drink an average of 44 gallons of soda a year, a 17 percent drop from the peak in 1998. Over the same time, the average amount of water people drink has increased 38 percent to about 58 gallons a year. Bottled water has led that growth, with consumption nearly doubling to 21 gallons a year.
I am super psyched that these statistics now show that folks are starting to make smarter choices for themselves and replacing, what I like to call, liquid diet killers with the beverage your body literally cannot thrive without: WATER!!!
Blake wants to know if you fall in with this survey done by USA TODAY, or if you prefer another beverage?
