The article reports on the current condition of the carbonated soft drink (CSD) business. According to the Beverage Market Index, a report from Beverage World magazine based on industry contacts, the CSD business saw its first decline in more than 20 years, with a drop of 0.6 percent in 2005 and a corresponding drop in per capita consumption. The movement away from CSD to other healthy beverage options caused a precipitous decline in cola consumption.
