Error in Text in: Food Price and Diet and Health Outcomes: 20 Years of the CARDIA Study

Arch Intern Med. 2010;170(12):1089. doi:10.1001/archinternmed.2010.176

Error in Text. In the Original Investigation titled “Food Price and Diet and Health Outcomes: 20 Years of the CARDIA Study” by Duffey et al, published in the March 8 issue of the Archives (2010;170[5]:420-426), an error occurred in the first sentence of the third paragraph of the Comment section on page 424. The sentence should have read as follows: “Using our price elasticities and the sample's mean daily energy, body weight, and HOMA-IR values, we estimate that an 18% tax, which is the level that was unsuccessfully proposed by the state of New York and is considered by others as a minimal tax, would result in a roughly 104-kcal decline in daily total energy intake among young to middle-aged adults and reductions of 2 pounds per year.”
