Summary, etc.:
"Despite an increased government commitment in some developing countries to eradicating non-communicable diseases and introducing innovative prevention programs aimed at reducing obesity and type-2 diabetes, sugary beverage and fast food companies are thriving there. In examining this paradox, the author presents a political science explanation that emphasizes how junk food industries restructure politics and society before agenda setting for policy ever takes place"-- Provided by publisher.
