Yes. Manufacturers will resist Warning message be printed on sugary products. However, law must be enacted by GOI. We also need to reduce sugar consumption. more  
From the various comments that you have been publishing time and again on the harmful effects of various items quoting research reports, I think you should suggest to have a blanket warning on all food items that they are injurious to health like cigarettes. more
