Davisville, 4/14/14: How much sweet do you want?

Drink a 20-ounce regular soda daily for a week, and you’ll consume as much sugar as you see in this one-quart Mason jar. On today’s program Harold Goldstein, executive director of the Davis-based California Center for Public Health Advocacy, talks about their efforts to tame the tide of sugar in the name of public health.
