  • San Francisco Chronicle: Jul 14, 2019

    In her op-ed in the San Francisco Chronicle, PI's Leslie Mikkelsen calls out the beverage industry as they stymied 5 bills this legislative session, all designed to reduce children's consumption of sugary beverages. "Bills to tax sugary drinks, put warning labels on them, keep them out of checkout lanes, cap serving sizes and limit discounts were all stopped or stalled." She calls on lawmakers to remember that the onus is not on parents to stop their children from drinking sweetened drinks, but on the American Beverage Association, which designs its marketing to get kids hooked on soda.
