(Newser) – You've seen them on cigarettes and alcohol, but now Californians might see warning labels on soda. A new bill requiring warnings on sugary drinks in the state was introduced today. The labels would warn about the risks of obesity, diabetes, and tooth decay. According to the Los Angeles Times, they would appear on bottles and cans from the store, and, in the case of fizzy fountain drinks, on self-serve dispensers or on cash-register counters if the fountain is not available to customers.
