12:37 pm
ah, in the 30 years since warning labels and other forms of regulation were placed on tobacco over 1000000000 of lives have been saved. thanks a that's a pretty good day at the office for people who make policy ah malia cohen and one of her fellow supervisors have made san francisco the 1st u. s. city to declare war on sugary sodas. when people realize how much sugar they are consuming in one can of soda, they stop and they think. so we had testimony right here in this chamber of doctors of nurses, a researchers that talked to us about the effects of sugar in our body. and it was through these ongoing dialogues for years that we came up with an idea to begin to

tax sugary beverage as long imposing a tax is virtually revolutionary in the united states. the industry rage, it says pitch the line that the government was interfering with grocery shoppers. leading a family is difficult enough in today's economy. now some politicians want the government telling me how i should do it. they want to put new taxes on a lot of groceries. i buy the beverage. a sugar beverage industry came out. they hired lawyers, they hired lobbyists, they found people within the community to come out and say, please don't tell us what to eat or what to drink. this is not a nanny state, we want to make decisions on our own. they spent millions of dollars. as a matter of fact, the out spent us almost $6.00 to $1.00. give me a break and i can decide what to buy without government help. the government is just getting to involved in our personal lives. tell the candidates, government least it's removed, but public health advocates were able to mobilize citizen protests against the
