Editorial: State Must Reflect on Toll of Childhood Obesity
"The immediate and long-term costs of childhood obesity, for individual kids and for society, deserve more attention from families, nonprofits and yes, even the government," a Sacramento Bee editorial states. The editorial describes state and local efforts to curb childhood obesity, including a proposed statewide tax on soda. It concludes, "A soda tax may not end up making the most sense, but it ought to be part of the conversation."
