Warning Labels May be Placed on Caffeinated Drinks

December 13, 2007 | 2,826 views

In California, caffeinated beverages such as sodas and energy drinks may soon require health warning labels.

California law mandates an update to the list of harmful chemicals each year, and also orders the labeling of chemicals identified as potentially dangerous

A study on the effects of caffeine on pregnant woman showed evidence that state toxicologists are saying are "overwhelming," with adverse outcomes including spontaneous abortions, decreased fetal growth and decreased birth weight.

If labels are issued, they would only be placed on artificially-caffeinated drinks, and not those which contain caffeine naturally, such as coffee, tea, and chocolate.
