I subscribe to a weekly or so news feed from the International Association for the Study of Obesity (IASO) in the U.K. (to sign up, contact firstname.lastname@example.org).
Here are some of the items from the October 27 feed:
- US: Consumer groups complain over ‘stealth’ PepsiCo ads
- US: Tell McDonalds to stop hyping unhealthy fast food to kids
- Ireland: Why tax on sugar is a sweet idea for health
- US: Global Sports and Energy Drinks market could hit $52bn by 2016
- US: Researchers question link between sugary drinks and health risk
- US: Researchers find link between sugary drinks and aggression
It’s a good way to keep up on the sugary drinks controversy, if nothing else.
Next public appearance
This is the rescheduling of the lecture I was supposed to give on October 10. The taxi driver went through red light at entrance to the Pulaski, was pulled over and found to be driving without a license. We never made it. The lecture is on food politics. It starts at 6:00. Free and open to the public. The Newark Museum is at 49 Washington Street. This time, I’ll take the PATH.
