Studies

The consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages (SSBs) has risen dramatically over the last decades, paralleling the trends in the growing prevalence of obesity in the population. Numerous studies examine the impact of SSBs from many perspectives and the effects of taxing them. The Rudd Center has gathered and synopsized the available literature, updating it regularly to reflect the latest information available on SSBs. Note: The funders are listed in the synopses; studies have found that industry-sponsored research arrives at different conclusions than research sponsored by independent sources.
