SPOKANE -- Doctors say 50% of Americans are drinking soda or sugary drinks each day.
 
According to the Centers for Disease Control sugary drinks are the single largest source of calories in the American diet.
 
Dietitians say it's just too much.

The CDC says the average American drinks 57 gallons of soda each year.That means consuming 215 liters of pop or 608 cans of cola.

KREM 2's Danielle Grant talked with Gonazaga students and found that not everyone is hooked on soda.
