Document Abstract:
American teenagers are drinking only about half as much milk as their parents did 30 years ago, and sugary soft drinks are quickly becoming the beverage of choice. But the authors of a new study on teenage nutrition say that increase in sugar consumption could compromise the future health of the nation. The study found between 1965 and 1996 total milk consumption among adolescents dropped by close to 50%. That decrease was accompanied by a large increase in consumption of sugar-laden soft drinks and fruit-flavored beverages.
