New York Starts Big-Soda Ban?

New York is in the process of banning soda 16 ounces and higher. This means nowhere! No restaurants, stadiums, nowhere! If you get caught with a Big soda it could carry a $200 fine. Damn…

Doctors treating the casualties of the global obesity epidemic say an unpopular proposal to limit soda portions in New York City should be just the beginning of stricter regulation of unhealthy foods.

Public opinion polls show a majority of Americans oppose New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s plan to limit single servings of sugary drinks to 16 ounces (0.45 kilograms) at restaurants and other public venues.

Many view the measure as unwelcome government intervention in their daily diets.

But exasperated diabetes specialists say people need even greater protections from a food industry that keeps enticing them with ever-bigger portions, as more than two-thirds of the country’s adults are now overweight or obese. Excess weight contributes to health problems from diabetes to hypertension.

“We’re spending billions of dollars for drugs to cure the problem after the problem happens, instead of preventing the problem,” said Dr. Bryce Palchick, a general practitioner in Pittsburgh.
