(CNN) - The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says Americans are drinking about
100 calories a day in alcohol.
That's almost as many calories as they
consume in sugary drinks and soda.
The new CDC study finds adults consume five percent of all their calories from alcoholic beverages compared to almost six percent for other sweetened drinks.
The research also made a few other
discoveries, like men drink more calories a day than women. Men also
drink more beer than other types of alcohol.
The study also shows the overwhelming majority of adults drink moderately.
