Big Soda is fooling you
Independent scientists have proven that liquid sugar is a leading cause of diabetes. For decades, soda companies have funded "research" to obscure this simple truth, making our children sick while they profit. It's time to label sugary drinks as dangerous. 14 percent of the state has diabetes today, costing us $24.5 billion a year, over 1% of our GDP. 1 in 2 African American and Hispanic children born today will develop diabetes. The public should know how dangerous sugary drinks are.
We’re Sending Them 16 Packets a Day
Three Democrat Senators from Los Angeles are blocking progress by refusing to vote on SB 203, the measure to label soda. Until they give back their soda money and vote to label sugary drinks, we will send a letter containing 16 packets of sugar (the amount in a 20 oz soda) to each of them every day. We’ll do the same to Senate Speaker Kevin de Leon, asking him to remove them from the health committee.
