6:22 pm
in 3 san francisco children and condolence were obese over and over overweight. look to one side of you at least one of the 3 people sitting in this room who are if we were all children would be obese or overweight and if what we side nothing a third of the population will be obese and face the sugars like diabetes and many other health problems. also youth and adolescence are up for sleep disorders and asthma and others. each extra can of the sodas and energy drinks each one me drink per day increases a child's likelyness of becoming obese so
6:23 pm
a drink of sod can they could become obese by 60 percent. everyone is impacted and carotid to the department of san franciscans are paying hundreds of dollars in confidence for programs directly attributed to sugar and it's impacting diabetes and other go health problems and costs to the city. also very importantly the proposal that a number of supervisors on the board of supervisors with me are playing on the ballet in november it would allow $31 million a year to be used for impacted communities but also to fund schools, parks and public health programs like student ammunition
6:24 pm
programs and healthy ammunition programs and so much more. the funding for a soda tax in san francisco would be an accountability mechanism to make sure that experts and community members oversees is fund so every penny is preventing the health of our children. all low income community that a.d.vesical impacted especially in low income communities. there's a current report that highlights the impacts on asian pacific islanders it is impacted by the center for the health advocacy by 3 members. it shows clearly that asian-american teens are targeted by big soda companies

6:27 pm
many of the asian pacific islander community members from the church leaders and youth point to a lot of the key problems in asian pacific islander communities. i mentioned shattering the minor myth of the asian-american i think we see that big soda targets asian-americans and asian pacific islander whether hosting significant populations that are asian and asian pacific islander. those are serious issues that the asian pacific islander health equity had focused on as we condition the discussion i wanted to say that the soda take into consideration on the november ballot there's a lot of misinformation from big soda was it taxes and not.
