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.

OUR PROGRAMS

That's Life

Live Thursday 1-2pm
Replays Sunday 2-3pm

DJ(s): 

Sometimes interviews with local folks. It might be about work, or life choices, or philosophy, or history. Sometimes birding, or art, or other passions. Or about local activities, groups, or events.  It's rarely about politics, and it never includes shouting! When there's no guest, it's laid-back music.  Oldies or Hawaiian or Mom's 1940s songs--whatever feels right that day.
