WHO Ambassador For NCDs Michael Bloomberg Discusses Efforts To Reduce Global Obesity, Tobacco Use In FT Interview

Financial Times: Michael Bloomberg talks tough on health and junk food
“…Michael Bloomberg, businessman, philanthropist, and former mayor of New York, with a net worth of $52.3bn, has added a near-indigestible job title to his schedule over the past year: the World Health Organization ambassador for non-communicable diseases. That means he has redoubled his focus and grant-making around ill health linked to poor lifestyle choices such as the excessive consumption of sugar, salt, and fat, which can drive conditions including diabetes and heart disease…” (Jack, 8/29).
