Sugar Ban in San Francisco

SodasSan Francisco officials unanimously voted recently on a package of ordinances that would restrain the consumption of sugary drinks. Ordinances would require warning labels on containers, billboards and advertisements. The warnings would caution consumers that drinking beverages with added sugar(s) could contribute to obesity, diabetes and tooth decay. Other ordinances would prohibit ads on city-owned property and ban city departments from buying sugary drinks with city funds.

Supporters of the package hope that other cities will consider the proposals and follow suit. The proposal must gain approval by City Supervisors and the Mayor.
