Group waging war on sugar

Sugary drinks soda

A consumer watchdog group is waging war on sugar.

They are asking the Food and Drug Administration to address the issue of sugars in sodas and other drinks.

The Center for Science in the Public Interest filed a petition with the FDA Wednesday signed by dozens of doctors and nutrition experts.

The group wants the FDA to determine a safe limit for added sugar in drinks.

Table sugar, honey, dextrose and high-fructose corn syrup are all forms of added sweeteners.
