Does Taxing Soda Actually Stop People from Drinking It?

April 16, 2018

Amy Auchincloss, PhD, an associate professor in the Dornsife School of Public Health, was quoted in an April 12 Time magazine article on her study looking into the effect Philadelphia’s sugary beverage tax had on soda consumption in the city's residents. The study was also covered (Auchincloss and her student and fellow researcher Yichen Zhong were quoted) in an April 12 HealthDay story picked up by outlets like U.S. News & World Report and Health magazine. Additionally, the story was covered in PhillyVoice and featured on multiple broadcasts, including on KYW-TV (CBS-3), on public radio stations like WYPR-FM (Baltimore), and in a story that featured an interview with Auchincloss that aired on CBS-affiliated radio stations like KMOX-AM (St. Louis).
