california sugar drinks
California would become the first state to require warning labels on the front of sodas and other sugary drinks under proposed legislation announced in Sacramento, Calif., Thursday, Feb. 13, 2014. A bill SB1000, by Sen. William Monning D-Carmel, would require manufacturers to place warnings on beverage containers that have added sweeteners that have 75 or more calories in every 12 ounces. The beverage industry notes that drink containers list the number of calories on the label. (AP Photo/Rich Pedroncelli)
