CARAVALI-MEZA, Nuris Yohana; JIMENEZ-CRUZ, Arturo; BACARDI-GASCON, Montserrat  and  GOMEZ-MIRANDA, Luis Mario. Obesity and high health risk due to beberages consumption and obesity among high school students in México. Nutr. Hosp. [online]. 2015, vol.31, n.5, pp.2324-2326. ISSN 1699-5198.

The purpose of this study was to identify the consumption of beverages among high school Mexican students and to determine obesity (OB) and abdominal obesity (AB). Differences in range and calorie beverage consumption between gender and BMI categories were calculated with the Mann-Whitney test. We assessed 1,677 students 15 to 17 yo. The prevalence of OB and AO was 15% and 53% in men and 12% and 47% in women. The consumption of energy, sugary drinks, and alcohol in milliliters and kilocalories per week, was higher in men (p = 0.001). More than 70% of students consumed per day more than 25 g/day of sugar from beverages, and more than 38% consumed more than 50 g/day of sugar. This high risk food consumption warrants immediate intervention.
