S.F. Supervisors Take Aim at Sugar-Sweetened Beverages
On Tuesday, three San Francisco Supervisors are expected to introduce new measures aimed at reducing residents' consumption of sugary beverages that have been linked to health problems, such as obesity and diabetes. One of the proposals would make the city the first to require that advertisements for such beverages include a warning label, another would prohibit advertising for sugar-sweetened beverages from appearing on city property and the third would bar the city from spending money on such drinks.
