and hub knobs with political leaders. to ensure those results contact was established within the senate. we will actively campaign to register that a off during tax is discriminatory, regressive, and will not address the challenge of obesity. we have commissioned the economic institute to complete a study which will prove inefficiency of such tax. it will be ready in 15 days, which will give us another tool to communicate both to the media and to avoid it. gains ground within the party or new york times at frontier. so i won't get a hold him. he calls himself when you can cook. cook echoed outfit, a c kettle. when you do not optional, said the button i. yeah, it is as wish. yes, young, spotty, maybe get imprinted on below. i think this expect on she liked mine just sugary drinks fast foods, causing all these health problems. i mean look at that with you just. ready look, the times revealed that between 2008 in 2015, steve player had received over 3 and
1:35 am
a half $1000000.00 in research funding from coca cola. i pointed to serve as scientific expert by the city and county of san francisco. dean shillinger must untangle the truth from falsehood. when we did the analysis of the studies, we found that every study that found that there was no association between sugary beverage consumption and will be seen. diabetes was funded in some way by the industry. whereas among all the studies that found that there was an association between the consumption soda and sugary beverages and obesity, diabetes, except for one, we're independently funded. so we now know, and there's other evidence that industry has been i'm influencing very deeply. the medical and scientific establishment to create controversy over the question
1:36 am
of whether their products cause disease. mm. the junk food industry is cornered all over the globe activists are demanding tighter legislation to protect consumers. the battle has now become political. ah, in the 30 years since warning labels and other forms of regulation were placed on tobacco over 1000000000 of lives have been saved. like say, 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
1:37 am
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 began to tax sugary beverage as long imposing a tax is virtually revolutionary in the united states. the industry raged. it's as 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
1:38 am
a break. i can decide what to buy without government help. the government is just getting to involved in our personal lives, tell the candidates government lease to to remove, but public health advocates were able to mobilize citizen protests against the recalcitrant industry. we're going away, this bad doctors and politicians lining up outside of san francisco city hall framing the sugar sweetened beverage debate. as the people vs big soda, we no longer can fit back and let the big soda industry target and hurt our community. mm. mm. the tax was finally voted in the victory was bitter. when san francisco moved to require health warnings on soda containers like the ones on cigarettes, the soft drink lobby, sued once again and one on appeal. mm. the warning labels were shelved. a same method had been used in new york
1:39 am
city when mayor michael bloomberg suggested a law limiting the size of jumbo soda sold and restaurants. bloomberg was marked as a scolding nanny and the courts ruled in the industries favor. ah, in this face off between corporate freedom and consumer protection, freedom once again seemed to be the private property of the most powerful. i represent a part of san francisco, that was emigrate. people, people who speak english as a 2nd language. people who live in subsidized housing, public housing tenements and the one thing that we all had in common was that we were dying from preventable diseases dying. and
1:40 am
you know, that was just really hard to accept. and it seemed like people didn't care. the industry didn't care, they continued to target their money and the resources to get people addict it so that they become wealthier. so what brings me to this entire conversation is that i don't want to know where people to die. and if it means changing policies, changing, educating people, so that they're aware of the choices that they have and bringing more choices to
1:41 am
people. then that's what i'm about. that's what i'm fighting for. and we can at least sit by and let them kill us. so that's why i'm involved thought a we sweeten the world side because the market no longer were growing in europe in the us. so coke and pepsi and all the clones, all the local companies that do the same thing, exploded and marketing and in the low and middle income countries, mexico was the 1st country to be colonized by these agribusiness conquerors.

a former last billing book. dental. have you have it? me come and impossible it our down, but howard saw the lumber. howard. i saw that in the see. i mean, melissa giving a c or a from allow you little boy, i see people who close on there. so i think 11. okay, next you know, with in that same 18 months we thought 25 percent reduction in purchases of sugar we beverages and showing that unprecedented. and we're seeing large reductions and all the ultra process junk foods as well. mm hm. that is the 1st time we've seen the glimmer of a country that might change the norms toward healthy eating,
1:56 am
which lay ensued. revolution has inspired action and neighboring countries. peru has instituted the same labels, and uruguay is about to do so. and dramatically, mexico is joining them and it's new president and congress have just passed new legislation requiring the same kind of labeling was chilly, filthy when my, your job on the other side of the atlantic. the contrast is striking. europe's nutri score labeling is fairly timid compared to the black labels in chile. only a few countries have adopted it and it is not even mandatory but it is a need to be a little later just or i will say that there was a stemmed. it doesn't play it, we, it was actually, the more i did it completely false either or probably them yelled all or the mean i'll be she jack, there will be at work writers live sound. she's so another winning strategy for corporate interests in germany has been to play the role of allies and the fight
1:57 am
against obesity. in this commercial produced by a supermarket chain promises a commitment to promoting healthy foods to help children make their dreams come true. but is it really wise to trust the industry? ah i know villa and if i could respond, i deposited fuzzy and soon amulet of deutschland saw the politically dismissed vomit. yet his association offered to see about us, and as it was, it was denied to ent does the same garden. but i still live in soon saw, which medley has does, had him to go in. the dusty village huffed amana and his ash darkened lobby and our talent had as much roughly shit and doesn't it monochrome. who aggravated when at schools, on tightly here belong on, i am the german government counts on the industries a bill the to regulate itself. it does not impose either taxes on sugary beverages

or restrictions on advertising of artists photos until it's exposed to you and mentioned media, it has been met and mitzi shied ohio and this has come out with with selective, acknowledge has never been so readily available to everyone across the globe, but overwhelmed by information. can we distinguish the real science from the one
1:59 am
being imposed upon us? we're living in a world where there are many people who have a vested interest in finding information, finding scientific evidence, and discrediting even the notion that science could provide the truth about the natural world in the pursuit of business goals. large corporations are challenged strongly by scientific evidence. if you're emotionally invested and free markets, then climate change is a serious emotional threat. because dealing with that means we have to change our approach to business industries or on the war bar, attempting to debunk legitimate science by producing new evidence in science, fighting science. that's how ignorance is manufactured, their attention only seeking to the rail, fine. it's rolling using fire against itself. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy even foundation it be an arms race is an offense, very dramatic development,
2:00 am
only personally and getting to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, very critical time. time to sit down and talk with the week's top stories from all t. russia rebels, a list of proposals to nato for maintaining joint security. but the deputy foreign minister saying the ball is now in the alliance's court when it comes to the escalation over, you cried authentic and says, no. u. s. military personnel will be held liable for august. botch drone strike and afghanistan, which killed 10 civilians, including 7 children. we hear from a grieving relative, that's alesongo fo nobody approached us. no one contacted us and we were given no information.
