(WISH) – The World Health Organization is weighing in on taxing soda, and Indiana is partnering with Amazon.

The United Nations Health Agency recommended that countries tax sugary drinks like sodas, sport drinks and even 100 percent fruit juices as a way to fight obesity.

The World Health Organization said obesity worldwide more than doubled between 1980 and 2014, when nearly 40 percent of people globally were overweight.

Currently, only Berkely, California is supposed to start next year.

In other business headlines, some Indiana students will have an opportunity to work with one of the most successful companies in the world.

The State Commission for Higher Education and Indiana Internet are working with Amazon on internships for low income college students in the state.

Amazon has committed to create 100 paid internships in virtual customer service positions.
