Abstract

Authors conducted multivariate logistic regression analyses on odds of being obese among seven Asian subgroups and by place of birth using data from the 2009 California Health Interview Survey to determine if the association between soda consumption and obesity is uniform among Asian-American adults residing in California.

Despite low levels of soda consumption in several Asian-American ethnic groups, soda consumption increased the odds of being obese among Chinese, Koreans and other Asians but not for Whites. Obesity risk varied across Asian subgroups and by place of birth within these subgroups.

More public health efforts addressing soda consumption in Asian-American communities are needed as a strategy for not only preventing chronic diseases but also disparities, considering the varying levels of soda intake across subgroups.
