Sugar rush

    After a failed attempt in 2005, nutrition advocates in Philadelphia are pushing a proposal to the Obama administration. The Center for Science in the Public Interest is hoping the FDA will require soda products to feature warning labels.


    As Meggan Kole reports, along with the Philadelphia Department of Health, is seeking to put health warnings on beverages containing high amounts of sugar and sweeteners, raising awareness of diseases like diabetes and obesity.

    Perhaps this can be the common ground on the soda tax issue.
