Researchers from the University of Otago, Wellington, combined evidence from settings where a sugary drinks’ tax had been applied and evaluated it into a meta-analysis. Studies included four cities in the US: Cleveland, Ohio; Portland, Maine; Berkeley, California; and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. A regional tax was studied in Catalonia, Spain, and the effects of country-wide taxes were studied in Chile, France and Mexico. The research is published in the international scientific journal, Obesity Reviews.
