New York Plans to Ban Sale of Big Sizes of Sugary Drinks
(visit the link for the full news article)
New York City plans to enact a far-reaching ban on the sale of large sodas and other sugary drinks at restaurants, movie theaters and street
carts, in the most ambitious effort yet by the Bloomberg administration to combat rising obesity.
The proposed ban would affect virtually the entire menu of popular sugary drinks found in delis, fast-food franchises and even sports arenas, from
energy drinks to pre-sweetened iced teas. The sale of any cup or bottle of sweetened drink larger than 16 fluid ounces — about the size of a medium
coffee, and smaller than a common soda bottle — would be pro
HAHA this isn't going to stop someone who is thirsty.
they will simply buy 2 medium drinks.
another thing is- if the diet soda is still for sale, ALL the thirsty people will go buy it instead ( and get EVEN fatter) because diet soda is WAY
worse for you than normal soda already is.
this will do absolutely NOTHING.
they need to stop selling soda all together, and sell tea, and healthy hippie drinks (but ones that taste really awesome)
not trying to be evil or controlist, but.... people are DYING because they are so fat.
usually i try to stay out of peoples business, but really, they need help.
im not trying to make them take pills, or drug them, and im not forcing them to put ANYTHING into their bodies that they don't want, but my
suggestion would be that they do something about the type of foods that are available to people in general.
movie theaters shouldn't sell disgusting heart attack hot dogs sitting on the heated rollers for 1 week, instead they should sell healthy lean tasty
fresh hot dogs instead.
instead of selling popcorn with grease and fake chemicals, they should sell FRESH healthy REAL popcorn with REAL butter.
