The American Beverage Association (ABA) has announced a program to place calorie counts on vending machines in two U.S. cities in 2013. At the same time the ABA foundation will spend $5 million on wellness programs for Chicago and San Antonio, rewarding those who lose weight and stop smoking, along with other healthy behaviors. Are they really interested in our health, or is this politics to head off size caps or soda taxes? Only time will tell!
PositiveTip: Labels or no labels, choose to avoid sugar-sweetened beverages. Drink water instead.
