Tax the marketing and sale of unhealthful foods. This isn’t nanny-state paternalism but an accepted role of government: public health.

If you support seat-belt, tobacco and alcohol laws, sewer systems and traffic lights, you should support legislation curbing the relentless marketing of soda and other foods that are hazardous to our health.

Oh, Mark Bittman.  I have a foodie crush on you.
