October 1st CQ Researcher

Purportedly focusing on the issue of “Preventing Obesity,” the October 1, 2010 CQ Researcher, published by CQ Press, is out and it is an amazing resource that fuels a much broader discussion of the role of food in our society. Here’s just a sample of the topics addressed in the issue:

Should cities and states impose excise taxes on sugar-sweetened beverages?

Will menu labeling help reduce obesity?

Should the government restrict food marketing to children?

Time for a change: Government school lunch standards are outdated.

Should soda be excluded from the foods that food-stamp users can buy?

Banishing ‘Food Deserts’ in Low-Income Neighborhoods– an initiative to increase access to supermarkets.

States rights? Twenty-nine states have or are considering requiring nutritional information.

Like we said, it is an amazing resource. Thanks to FRAC for the link. You can download the issue here.
