You are right. Goal of study was to show that there can be impact on care. Healthcare providers need to be trained… https://t.co/P8ZP14leuo

Great to have the students on the set and then back at our offices. They asked really insightful questions. https://t.co/g4qRXkhSud

Rudeness is bad for your health! @DrJAshton and I break down a surprising new study on the Big Board. Have a polite and friendly day! @GMA

IIRC @navsaria @DrRichardBesser SNAP does have some food item restrictions already, but why restrict soda over say sugary breakfast cereal ?

.@lizditz @DrRichardBesser I do want to be clear that I’m not advocating soda as a wise choice, but econ pressure might push ppl that way.

.@lizditz @DrRichardBesser For example, “dollar menus” at fast food are much cheaper to feed a family than healthier fare.

@DrRichardBesser I would support WIC-like restrictions, but even that has Big Agriculture biases (too much dairy).

@AParekhBPC @DrRichardBesser @nytimes yes, but let's do it w/o villainizing people on #SNAP. SSBs are pub health threat regardless of income

@DrRichardBesser @nytimes While I agree that the US Govt should not subsidize the pop industry, this points to a larger system failure.

@DrRichardBesser @nytimes The problem is complex. If you had limited funds, would you buy $.99 3L bottles generic soda or $3.50 gal of milk.

@DrRichardBesser @nytimes I think we need to advocate for healthier choices being more affordable. Organic foods are too expensive for many!
