San Francisco approves health warning on sugary drink ads
The Mercury News

Soda and some other sugary drinks contribute to health problems, San Francisco supervisors said as they voted unanimously to approve health warnings on ads for such beverages.

The soda industry said it might sue to block the ordinance, while supporters said they will seek to expand the requirement beyond the city.

It’s believed San Francisco would be the first place in the country to require such warnings if the Board of Supervisors gives a second approval next week and the mayor allows it to go into effect.
