PositiveTip for

Soda Warning Labels

Warning labels on sugar-sweetened beverages help lower obesity rates.

Computational simulation modeling has demonstrated in Baltimore, Philadelphia and San Francisco, that warning labels on sugar-sweetened beverages (SSBs) encouraged a significant drop in obesity prevalence following the adoption of the policies. This should give encouragement to other jurisdictions that are considering similar measures.

PositiveTip: Don't wait for regulations: just refuse to purchase or drink SSBs and you will reap the benefits!
