States and cities squabble over healthy food laws
An interesting article in Time discusses how some states are now passing legislation state bans on city bans on unhealthy food. Case in point - Cleveland adopted a trans-fat ban which could have helped reduce heart disease in the city but the state of Ohio stepped in and overturned the ban. Other examples include Alabama and Florida who have recently adopted limits on cities' authority to ban unhealthy food.
