    Local Venues for Change: Legal Strategies for Healthy Environments.Marice Ashe, Lisa M. Feldstein, Samantha Graff, Randolph Kline, Debora Pinkas & Leslie Zellers - 2007 - Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics 35 (1):138-147.
    Mounting evidence documents the extraordinary toll on human health resulting from the consumption of unhealthy food products and physical inactivity. Diseases related to poor nutrition – such as diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and some cancers – are among the leading causes of disability and death in the United States. Poor diet and lack of exercise come second only to tobacco use in actual causes of preventable death in this country. It is estimated that 6% of all adult health care, 7% (...)

    If Sugar is Addictive… What Does It Mean for the Law?Ashley Gearhardt, Michael Roberts & Marice Ashe - 2013 - Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics 41 (s1):46-49.
    Sugar consumption has long been linked with a host of chronic health problems, including obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. To reduce Americans’ intake, many have called for taxing sugary products or limiting access in certain environments like schools and workplaces. These sometimes controversial calls for new public policy to curb consumption may soon be eclipsed by newly emerging links between sugar and addiction.Attaching the label “addictive” to a substance like sugar, which is necessary for human life, challenges widely held beliefs (...)

    If Sugar Is Addictive…What Does It Mean for the Law?Ashley Gearhardt, Michael Roberts & Marice Ashe - 2013 - Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics 41 (s1):46-49.
    Newly emerging links between sugar and addiction raise challenging issues for public health policy. What was once a naturally occurring food ingredient is now a highly concentrated food additive. If foods containing artificially high levels of sugar are capable of triggering addictive behaviors, how should policymakers respond? What regulatory steps would be suitable and practical? This paper explores the concept and definition of addiction and presents evidence of the addictive potential of sugar. It also explores the legal implications if sufficient (...)

    America’s increasing obesity problem requires federal, state, and local lawyers, policymakers, and public health practitioners to consider legal strategies to encourage healthy eating and physical activity. The complexity of the legal landscape as it affects obesity requires an analysis of coordination across multiple sectors and disciplines. Government jurisdictions can be viewed “vertically,” including the local, state, tribal, and federal levels, or “horizontally” as agencies or branches of government at the same vertical level. Inspired by the successful tobacco control movement, obesity (...)

    The Racialized Marketing of Unhealthy Foods and Beverages: Perspectives and Potential Remedies.Anne Barnhill, A. Susana Ramírez, Marice Ashe, Amanda Berhaupt-Glickstein, Nicholas Freudenberg, Sonya A. Grier, Karen E. Watson & Shiriki Kumanyika - 2022 - Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics 50 (1):52-59.
    We propose that marketing of unhealthy foods and beverages to Black and Latino consumers results from the intersection of a business model in which profits come primarily from marketing an unhealthy mix of products, standard targeted marketing strategies, and societal forces of structural racism, and contributes to health disparities.
