THE soda warning label

(


ONLINE MEDIA ROOM: California Sugar-Sweetened Beverages Safety Warning Bill (Monning)
California's obesity and diabetes epidemic is taking an enormous toll on public health and driving up healthcare costs. 

A vast amount of scientific research shows that soda and other sugary drinks are the single largest factor in the obesity epidemic. Furthermore, liquid sugar has a unique role in contributing to the skyrocketing number of diabetes cases in our state. 

Consumers have a right to know about the unique health problems associated with soda and other sugary drinks. That's why the California Center for Public Health Advocacy is co-sponsoring the sugar-sweetened beverages safety warning. It's a common sense approach to combat this growing health crisis. It provides vital information to California families about the dangers related to what they drink, so they can make informed choices about what they purchase.
