Re "Public needs warning on soda's threat to health" (Editorials, May 11): Sugary drinks should be labeled for the health of all Americans, especially teens.

Sugary drinks like Coca-Cola are refreshing, but could lead to obesity, diabetes, tooth decay and other illnesses. Sodas contain too many calories and are high in fructose corn syrup, which are bad for the human liver.

Do we want to lose more money on health care? What should be our future course of action?
