The New York City ban of large-sized sugary beverages in certain establishments as well as a tremendous amount of new research regarding sugary beverages and obesity has sparked this significant discussion all over the country.
So when the Center for Science in the Public Interest asked us to let FoodFacts.com visitors know about this exciting and enlightening contest they’re now running, we were happy to comply!
Here are the details:
