Beer is the beverage of choice for most adult binge drinkers, but it won't help their health if they switch to soda.
A new study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says that binge drinking is defined as drinking 5 or more alcohol beverages in one sitting. 74% of the binge drinkers surveyed said they drank beer exclusively or predominantly in their most recent binge-drinking episode. Beer accounted for 67% of binge drinks consumed; distilled spirits or liquor was second with 22%; and wine and other flavored premixed drinks accounted for 11%.
Meanwhile, researchers have found new evidence that soft drinks sweetened with high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) may contribute to the development of diabetes, particularly in children. And diabetes will REALLY give you a beer belly!
