Sugary drink regulation: Education is not enough, says Bowdoin College professor

By John Glynn

Sarah Conly, assistant professor at Bowdoin College, says government regulation of the portion size of sugary drinks at restaurants is in the best interest of the public. Simply educating the public is not enough, she says.

Conly was one of three panelists who spoke during the Feb. 6 panel, “They’ll Take My Big Gulp from My Cold, Dead Hands – Public Health, the Police Power and the Nanny State” at the 2014 ABA Midyear Meeting in Chicago.

The program was sponsored by the ABA Section of State and Local Government Law.
