Bottled water catches up to soda

FOX19 - Soda is going under water.

For the first time ever, consumption of bottled water by Americans is about to overtake soda consumption, according to new data from the market research firm Euromonito.

Americans are expected to drink about 102 liters of bottled water this year, compared to about 98 liters of soft drinks.

Euromonitor says rising bottled water sales is because of its health benefits compared to soda.
