News from Doctor Kaplan

"As a doctor with a strong interest in research and public health policy, I find the current debate over a soda tax in New York disappointing. The state has told us that this tax will reduce obesity. There is simply no authoritative health study to justify this claim; on the contrary, repeated clinical studies tell us that this effort will fail."
- Michael G. Kaplan, M. D., is an attending physician at Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn.
