  • They definitely need warning labels. I used to drink 1-2 gallons of soda a day and I had no idea how bad it was. I wasn’t stupid, I just didn’t know what was in soda.

  • I say remove every warning label for 12 months and see natural selection at work. Manufacturers save money and we get to clean up the gene pool while lowering the population. Its win win all round

  • So, when big brother (government) begins Socailized Medicine, they will dictate what you can and cannot consume.

    Big Brother is watching you.

  • U might know about soda and it’s harmful effects but out west,, calif oreg wash,, there is thousands who done know or don’t care. N big brother is already here. So deal with it, or hybernate.

  • This is stupid. Everyone knows soda causes these problems. There is more important stuff that needs to be done. What a waste of energy.
