Soda could very well be next. Once they are done with banning smoking in all public places in the US they will focus on food, cus we can't help
oursleves from eating.
Oh wait, they already have, NYC banned trans-fats or some such thing like that. They blame high insurance costs on smokers, even though the cost of
dealing with those that are severely overweight has now has reached if not surpassed the health care costs of smoking.
Not to mention the companies that will not hire you if you smoke. What happens when one of these companies decides you are overweight and have 1 year
to lose it, or lose your job? Or not even get hired in the first place?
There might be a simple solution to the overweight problem. Put down that soda, and have a glass of water. Instead of going to the fridge for a snack,
go for a walk around the block. Instead of kids sitting in front of a TV playing video games, get outside and play tag, ride a bike, run until you
can't run anymore.
