Should Sugary Drinks Have Warning Labels?
Do you remember when we drank soda with every meal and even in between meals. If you have been following my blog you will realize I write often about the dangers of sugar. Because the danger is REAL! There is a overwhelming body of evidence linking sugar to diabetes, obesity and heart disease.
Remember when we glamorized smoking?
But in the wake of an overwhelming body of evidence linking smoking to lung cancer, and a Surgeon General's report in 1964, explicit warning labels were slapped across cigarette packs starting in 1966. The percentage of adult smokers dropped from over 40% in 1965 to around 15% in 2015.
Now that sugar is the "new tobacco," what are your thoughts about adding a health-related warning labels to sugar-sweetened beverages?
