Sugar-Sweetened Beverages and Your Health

The California Dental Association is supporting bills targeting Coke and Pepsi in California. Dentists, physicians and public health advocates are supporting the package of bills aimed at reducing consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages and ensuring companies like The Coca-Cola Co. and PepsiCo pay their fair share of public health costs.  Not only do sugary beverages such as soda, energy drinks, sweet teas and sports drinks contribute to tooth decay, they also contribute to obesity, diabetes and heart disease.  These measures will help lower consumption and help Californians make healthier choices that prioritize public health.
