Healthy San Francisco is a pretty rad program. Of course the descipicable business people make a lot of noise about how it will "put them out of business" , which is so completely retarded and untrue. If we actually had low-wage manufacturing which was trying to compete with other exporters, it might hurt them, but it doesn't hurt restaurants at all because they are only competing with each other, so if all their prices rise they don't suddenly get undercut by cheap external competition. It's also one of those programs that's almost free, in the sense that the spending for preventative care will be matched by savings in emergency care.
