Tackling Obesity & Diabetes in the Poor

Study looks at banning the use of food stamps to buy soda.

A new study suggests that banning the use of food stamps to buy soda and other sugary drinks could cause a major drop in obesity and diabetes among the poor.

Stanford researchers say it could prevent more than 130,000 kids from getting obese and keep another 200,000 adults from developing type-two diabetes.

This study comes as critics say the food stamp program supports the purchase of sugary drinks that don't have nutritional value.
