Warnings Must Stay On Sugary Drink Adverts! Court Says

Sugary Drinks  

Sometime ago I wrote a post asking your opinion if, manufacturers really care about our health... Read it here if you didn't Do Manufacturers really care about our health

Well that comes into play in this situation as a Federal Court in Northern California has rejected an effort to block a new San Francisco law that requires health warnings on advertisement for sugary drinks.

U.S. District Court Judge Edward M. Chen's decision Tuesday clears the way for the law approved by city lawmakers last year to take effect in July.

The ordinance requires the warnings to appear on ads for soda and other sugar-sweetened beverages that appear on billboards, buses, transit shelters, posters and stadiums within the city.

The labels would read: "WARNING: Drinking beverages with added sugar(s) contributes to obesity, diabetes and tooth decay."

The American Beverage Association and other groups have sued the city to overturn the law. Chen denied their request for an injunction to keep the measure on hold while the case proceeds.

I believe this law is for the betterment of the people, I mean enlightening people about the consequences of what they eat and drink which would lead to a more healthy society. 

Stay Healthy, Stay Wise.
