New report offers policy solutions for a nation that can’t afford fast food’s abuses

May 2, 2012 | CUNY School of Public Health

The report, written by CUNY School of Public Health MPH student Monica Gagnon, Professor Nick Freudenberg and Corporate Accountability International, Slowing Down Fast Food: A policy guide for healthier kids and families, documents ways in which city and county policymakers can address the toll that diet-related disease is taking on their municipalities and on their communities’ health. It offers specific solutions to curb a primary contributor to the problem – the overconsumption of fast food and the ubiquitous marketing of fast food to children.
