On The Sugar Wars: Science's Fierce, Geeky Debate Over Soda

Perhaps I am in error in my assumption that banning/taxing any food item coats it with a layer of allure it would not otherwise possess. There is another approach: teach nutrition based on research to school children and their family doctors, subsidize fruits and vegetables (not meat and dairy), and promote an understanding of the many health and well-being benefits of a more plant-based way of eating. This link to Dr. Michael Greger is a great place to start seeking reliable information served up with a side order of slightly wry humor: www.nutritionfacts.org. Bon Appetit!
