    TOBACCO LAWSUIT-WINNING LAWYERS SUING THE FOOD INDUSTRY FOR FALSE CLAIMS

    Although the lawyers may be motivated by the potential payoff, I think these lawsuits will get people to pay attention and maybe even hold Big Food accountable for the burgeoning cost of chronic illness in the US.  And maybe this will help school districts recognize the need to scrutinize and prioritize the school food environment.…
