The awareness for obesity in the US is constantly growing and the awareness about the sugar-sweetened beverages is growing too. According to Reuters, which are industry experts, the beverage industry is slowly declining under the scrutiny.
The diet drinks that5 were made by these companies were suffering loss in sales, since people started to be concerned about the artificial sweeteners that were included in the drinks.
