S.F. Officials Advance Measures Targeting Sugary Drinks
On Monday, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors Land Use Committee passed three ordinances that would require warning labels on advertising for soda and other sugary beverages, ban such ads on city property and prohibit city departments from buying or selling sugary beverages. The ordinances were approved with a "positive recommendation," meaning they believe the full board should pass the measures.
