Officials in San Francisco are pushing forward with demanding health warning labels on sugary drinks, like soda. In order for the proposal to move forward, it first needs to be approved by the city Board of Supervisors and the Mayor. If the proposal is approved then all sugary beverages must have a label that clearly states that the drink can contribute to obesity, diabetes, and tooth decay.
City Supervisor, Scott Wiener, who proposed the ad warnings, compares it to a no-smoking campaign. He says that sugary drink consumption impacts healthcare and insurance rates.
