“STATE OF CALIFORNIA SAFETY WARNING: Drinking beverages with added sugar(s) contributes to obesity, diabetes, and tooth decay,” according to the California Medical Association, which is backing the bill. The wording was developed by a panel of nutrition and health experts.
Drinking one soda a day increases an adult’s risk of being overweight by 27 percent, and a child’s risk by 55 percent, the Medical Association said.

MAGNETISM: LONDON, June 16. 1893.
German theorists claimed recently that magnetism increased the resistance to conduction in motor nerves and caused paralysis. To test this theory Mr. A. C. Kennelly, of the Edison laboratory, and Dr. Frederick Peterson, of the College of Physicians and Surgeons, made some very interesting experiments, and their report to the American Electro-Therapeutic Association embodying the results of these experiments, which seem to have been very exhaustive, is against the German scientists. According to the Americans electro-magnetism has no influence upon the human body, or upon goats, dogs, or frogs. In the case of live frogs no influence of the magnet on blood cells or the movement of the blood could be found, and when a small dog  was placed in a cylinder between large field magnets and kept there for five hours under the influence of a strong magnetic current, the animal when released betrayed none of the symptoms he should have exhibited according to the German theory. He came out, in fact, just as lively as he went in. Then a boy was placed between the magnets and a magnetic current turned on. The current was strong enough to balance a heavy bolt in the air, and to contract wires of iron, and to hold chains co firmly that it required the efforts of several men to detach them, yet it had no visible effect on the lad. Finally the experimenters themselves took turns in lying down upon a board placed between the poles of a huge magnet with the current alternately turned on and off. One observer held the wrist of each subject and took sphygmograpbic tracings of the pulse, another observer noted the respiration, and a third turned the current on and off. The result of a long series of tests caused the experimenters to conclude that the human organisation is in no way affected by the most powerful magnets known, and that the brain and nerves get no sensations or impulses from the magneto. They seem to think it possible, however, that some day magnets may be invented where the number of reversals to the  second are high enough and the force strong  enough to produce effects on the nervous system.
