(HealthDay News) -- The average American gets more than 200 calories a day from sugary drinks, Harvard University's T.H. Chan School of Public Health says.
That's more than four times the average amount in 1965.
The thirst for sugary drinks is contributing to the diabetes and obesity epidemics, the school says.
Here are its suggestions for getting less sugar from beverages:
- Drink plenty of water, seltzer and skim or 1 percent milk.
- Avoid soda and sugary drinks that aren't 100 percent juice.
- Drink low-calorie drinks and 100 percent fruit juice only occasionally.
