SPECIAL REPORT on SSBs from Reuters

A great special report from Reuters.  It seems those with the fattest wallets continue to dominate the agenda around childhood obesity and sugar-sweetened beverages.

Click HERE to read a great report from Reuters about the state of affairs in the US currently.

We can count Massachusetts among the states who's SSB bills are ailing.  With the food industry out-spending childhood obesity advocates by huge margins, we have an uphill battle to fight.  May we continue pushing for the health of our children!

Mark Bittman had a great piece in the New York Times yesterday about regulating foods, particularly those with added sweeteners.  He does a great job of capturing the debate.  It is most definitely worth the read.
