Warning labels on soda?

I mailed copies of this letter to the following people:

October 26, 2020

Dear ____,

Have you considered requiring warning labels on soda? Every year, Big Soda spends billions of dollars convincing people to ruin their health. A warning label would be a simple way to stand up to their disinformation without infringing on consumer choice.
