Americans are Drinking Healthier

Bottled water is America's most popular drink, according to a recent survey by the American Institute for Cancer Research. Asked which beverage they consumed daily, those surveyed said bottled water, along with soda (formerly the leader), milk, coffee and fruit juice, in that order. Beer, liquor and cocktails ranked near the bottom of the survey.

In another blow to non-healthy drinks, the Center for Science in the Public Interest (best known for its campaigns against fattening foods) is urging the government to require obesity warning labels on sugar-laden beverages. Currently, there's no indication that their idea will become law anytime soon.
