goodbye big gulp: will nyc stop selling oversized drinks?
By now you may have heard about NYC Mayor Bloomberg’s proposed ban on sodas and sugary drinks larger than 16 ounces in food service establishments. Citing the nation’s increasing obesity epidemic, the Mayor has been both applauded for his firm stand to combat weight issues in his city, as well a criticized by some who say that he’s overreaching by taking away consumer’s freedom of choice when it comes to what they eat and drink.
Mayor Bloomberg has been working on this policy for more than two years, and with the cost of obesity-related health issues spiraling toward $8 billion in New York state alone (according to New York’s Department of Health), this latest measure may set an example for other cities to enact similar legislation.
Do you think laws like this will help people to lead healthier lifestyles?
