The soda industry continues to push back at the contention of NYC Mayor Bloomberg amongst others that the nation's obesity issues and high level of soda intake are interwoven. According to data dug out by academics, despite getting close to 100% of the blame, extra sugar only accounts for 9% of the extra calories the U.S. population takes in today compared to 30 years ago. Of that 9% extra sugar rush, soda only makes up a subset of the total.
