I'm from the UN. I'm here to help.
The NY Post reports that Soda So Bad? Pols Pop Off:
President Bush's team is caught in an international cola war - and critics are fizzing mad.

A World Health Organization report links sugary sodas to obesity across the globe, but the Bush administration claims WHO is grasping at straws and its report should be tossed out.
The WHO draft urges national governments to restrict soda advertising aimed at kids, as well as to limit soda vending machines in schools. It also suggests a tax on soft drinks.
That Pelosi in pants, Rep. Henry Waxman (D-Venus), is leading the whining on behalf of WHO, which apparently has nothing more important to do to improve world health. If the US taxpayers wanted whining they could have provided Al Gore with a megaphone.
