All of you soda pop fans, or as we say in the South, Coke, everything is a Coke, and even you weird people that drink Pepsi over Coke, listen up.

The feds are coming for your soda.

FreeBeacon.com reports The National Institutes of Health is spending $150,000 on a study about adding warning labels to soda.

The University of California, Davis, is conducting the study that is testing to see if warning labels can help to "‘nudge' consumers toward healthier drink choices and away from soda.

They’re testing this at the campus cafeteria right now with a possible expansion into workplaces settings to see if a warning label makes a difference in the consumption rate of soda.

The researchers claim the sugar filled drinks help to increase the risk of obesity in Americans young and old.

So once the government ball gets rolling on this, it won’t stop until soda is on the same level as cigarettes, with warning labels and high taxes.

One day in the future you may stop at your local convenience store and say to the person behind the counter that you want a pack of Camels and a can of soda pop that is just as dangerous apparently.

“Uh, sir we need to see some I.D. for your to buy that can of Coke.”
