Beverage consumption, physical activity, body mass index and waist circumference were compared in age-matched (aged 18-30 years) groups of young South African women from urban (n = 78) and rural (n = 94) settings. Obesity was higher in the rural group, driven by a higher consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages and low physical activity.
