The article presents a systematic scoping review following the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic reviews and Meta-Analyses extension for Scoping Reviews to summarize the landscape of national tax laws on sugar-sweetened beverage (SSB) – soft drinks, include carbonated and noncarbonated beverages that contain sugar-based caloric sweeteners, such as sucrose, high-fructose corn syrup, or fruit juice concentrates – consumption and its associated health risks, encompassing weight gain, obesity, type 2 diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. Its primary aim is to provide a methodical overview of national tax regulations on SSBs and to assess their influence on the prevalence of overweight, obesity, and type 2 diabetes.
