For Many HIV+ Women, Daily Survival Takes Precedence Over Viral Suppression

Georgetown University Medical Center

According to scientists who study women infected with HIV, statistics often paint an impressionist view of the lives of these women that misses the granular detail that tells the real story. The imprecise big picture is that most of this population is doing a good job at suppressing the virus, but facts gathered on the ground show that many struggle with issues of daily living that can make taking a pill to keep HIV at bay difficult.

Philadelphia’s Sweetened Drink Sales Drop 38 Percent after Beverage Tax

Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania

One year after Philadelphia passed its beverage tax, sales of sugary and artificially sweetened beverages dropped by 38 percent percent in chain food retailers, according to Penn Medicine researchers who conducted one of the largest studies examining the impacts of a beverage tax. The results, published this week in JAMA, translate to almost one billion fewer ounces of sugary or artificially sweetened beverages – about 83 million cans of soda – purchased in the Philadelphia area. The findings provide more evidence to suggest beverage taxes can help reduce consumption of sugary drinks, which are linked to the rise in obesity and its related non-communicable diseases, such as type II diabetes.

Johns Hopkins Medicine
