Could Berkeley’s soda tax be a model for tackling obesity across America?

We all know what happened in the election few days ago. Berkeley city in California definitely made history in this election to be the first city in the nation to impose a tax on sugary drinks.

 

Berkely Vs. Big Soda advocacy group worked hard and lobbied for this victory as a part of their Healthy Child Initiative campaign. There will be a $0.01 per ounce tax on all beverages sweetened with sugar ( except alcohol, dairy products and drinks for medical purposes). The revenue of this tax will support the city’s health and health education programs.

This indeed shows how America is ready to fight for a healthier society and let’s hope there will be many cities and states that will follow Berkeley’s lead to a healthier America.
