Reverse obesity in New York City? Here’s how
The City University of New York Campaign Against Diabetes and the Public Health Association of NYC have produced a new report: Reversing Obesity in New York City: An Action Plan for Reducing the Promotion and Accessibility of Unhealthy Food. I especially like the clear statements of arguments – on both sides – of doing something about stopping junk food marketing, especially to kids. This report should be useful for advocates who want to influence policy. Thanks to Lauren Dinour, Liza Fuentes, and Nick Freudenberg for writing it.
