People Are Consuming More Sugar

Scientists at the University of California, Davis are conducting a research study to determine what the effects of drinking 3 sugar-sweetened beverages each day has on a person´s metabolism.

We need healthy non-hispanic White and African-American women, ages 18-45, BMI range 25-35, who:

  • Are willing to drink 3 sweetened beverages each day for approximately 15 days
  • Are non-smokers and not taking thyroid, lipid-lowering, diabetes, depression or blood pressure medications
  • Have extra time to devote to helping us answer this important question

Participation in this study requires a significant time commitment:

  • The entire study lasts approximately 17 days, with experimental testing days lasting  approximately 16 days.
  • For portions of the study you will need to visit at Clinical and Translational Science Center (CTSC) Clinical Research Center (CCRC) located at UC Davis Medical Center.
  • Two 4-hour visits at the beginning of the study
  • Two 4-hour visits at the end of the study
  • You will be compensated approximately $305 for completing the study.
