3:32 pm
there is no link between sugar sweeten beverages and diabetes. and we know that is not the case with whenever the soft drink industry is in the dark, it adopts the same line of defense a explains, you're basically getting low always yeah, it's on per lemma dirty. him multi factorial, complete whole are sort of curious at our thought. i think it was unit dental bullock. october. the rhetoric is so smooth that it seems like a broken record, repetitive b. okay. and i just want some research shows, you know, have shown a link between the conception of sugar beverages and obesity. what you answer to that come with a confound, they are meant the lowest. he adds them for lima, complete hole in multi factorial. you didn't answer questions and we met different researchers and many of them compare the fight against consumption of sugar,

3:34 pm
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 from here. so i won't get a hold him. he comes from cell phones. you can't cook. cook echoed out of it. he dip aussie kaitlin, you do not know said the button i yeah, it is as wish. yes, young, spotty, maybe get imprinted on but i think this expect on she liked mine the sugary drinks fast foods causing all these health problems. i mean, look at that, would you just look the times revealed that between 2008 in 2015, steve player had received over 3 and 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
3:35 pm
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 that will be seen diabetes except for one were 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 of whether their products cause disease. mm hm. 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

3:37 pm
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. 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 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 versus big soda,
3:38 pm
we no longer can fit back and let the big so the industry target and her, our community. mm. mm. the tax was finally voted in that the victory was better. 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. the same method had been used in new york 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,

3:40 pm
they become wealthier. the. so what brings me to this entire conversation is that i don't want to wear 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 people. then that's what i am 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 with
