WATCH: California Takes Steps To Add Warning Labels to Soda and Sugary Drinks

While Florida school districts are just now getting around to banning the practice of pumping elementary schoolers full of Mountain Dew before standardized testing, the state of California is considering putting a warning label on all sodas that contain more than 75 calories per 12 ounces.

The label would read: “STATE OF CALIFORNIA SAFETY WARNING: Drinking beverages with added sugar(s) contributes to obesity, diabetes, and tooth decay.”

Personally, we think a more effective warning would be stationing one of us in front of grocery stores shouting “DRINKING DIET COKE FOR BREAKFAST WILL MELT YOUR BONES.”
