Researchers say cigarette-style graphic warnings would encourage us to cut back on sugary drinks, therefore helping to reduce numbers of type 2 diabetes, obesity and tooth decay.
Regardless of socioeconomic background, age and their level of education, participants of a study- undertaken by Deakin University- were 36% less likely to choose a sugary drink when a health warning label was displayed compared to no label.
Heath star ratings and graphic images on front-of-pack health labels ultimately encourages:
- The reduction of sugar-sweetened drinks being purchased
- Healthier choices being made
- Changes in consumer behaviours
