Soda Politics: The Language of Sugar and Fizz
7 September 2016 | 7 PM onwards
Our third ‘No Tongues Barred’ (#ntb) conversation, in collaboration with Oxford University Press, seeks to convene health experts, policy makers, beverage industry representatives, and journalists to discuss the ‘aspirational’ language of soft drinks and to ask if limiting the consumption of sugary drinks is the way to go?
Spurred by the release of Marion Nestle’s Soda Politics: Taking on Big Soda (and Winning,), this #ntb conversation will focus on the history, politics, nutrition, and health impact of soda, asking how we created this system, what its problems are, and what we can do to change things.
