When was the last time you drank soda, juice, or other forms of sugary drinks?

For most Americans, it is a normal part of everyday life.

The problem? These drinks are incredibly unhealthy, more so than some companies would lead consumers to believe, according to Xavier Morales, executive director of The Praxis Project, and Jim Krieger, executive director of Healthy Food America.

Check out this discussion on the Salud Talks Podcast, Episode 19, “Peddling Poison“!


In this episode, we explore questions such as:

  • Have certain groups—racial and socioeconomic—experienced worse consequences of sugary drinks?
  • Are there solutions to this problem? If so, how can individuals step up to raise awareness and reduce sugary beverages in their town?
  • How will regulations, such as sugary drink tax, help underserved groups?
