Mayor Bloomberg’s Soda Ban

new york soda banWhile I was knee-deep planning and working many hours to launch of new book, Sugar Shock, New York City came up with a controversial plan to ban jumbo-sized sugary larger than 16 ounces in restaurants, movie theaters, concession stands, and food carts.

I’ll share by thoughts shortly about this much-talked about plan. (Unfortunately, I couldn’t post earlier, because I was busy spreading the word about Beyond Sugar Shock.)

For now, I urge you to watch this TV interview with Bloomberg.

Then, make sure to tell us your thoughts about his plan.

But before you watch, you need to know that a 20-ounce bottle — which people guzzle in one sitting — contains nearly 17 teaspoons of sugar.

Also, your soda addiction can put you at risk for obesity, as well as the Big Preventable Big Killers such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, cancer, stroke, and Alzheimer’s Disease.

Weigh in now with your thoughts about Mayor Bloomberg’s Soda Ban.

  1. Connie, I think this is CRAZY! And I am all about no sugar! It should not be legislated. Smoking is not. That is far more deadly by % of people who smoke and do die v.s. % of people who drink large sodas and do actually die from it (Of course, this is logical but I have no stats.. ). People can buy 2 or 3 of the smaller sodas if they want or 2 liter bottles at the store. To me this is a waste of the Mayor’s time. Good intentions – attack obesity – but a completely absurd and arbitrary thing to do.
