Childhood Obesity

Ethical and Policy Issues

Kristin Voigt, Stuart G. Nicholls, and Garrath Williams

  • Argues for the importance of finding interventions and policies that are likely to serve other goals, and not just that of preventing obesity.
  • Includes a discussion of US soda taxation plans and attempts to ban super size soda in New York.
