Do you support NYC’s proposed ban on large sized soft drinks?
To combat obesity, New York City is proposing a ban on large sized soft drinks and other sugary beverages. The ban would affect the menus of movie theaters, restaurants, street vendors and more which would be unable to offer such drinks in sizes larger than 16 fluid ounces. That is less than an individual bottle of soda! If passed, the ban could take effect as early as March of next year.
What do you think of the proposed ban? Will it help with rising obesity?

its dumb, only thing this will do is make people pay more for same amount of soda they want in first place. Since smaller packages cost more then large ones. Way to target small people with your bullshit politicians.

This is retarded. I drink over 9000 sodas a day and I’m about 30 pounds underweight. You can’t blame weight gain on soda. Blame it on people being lazy and not caring about their own health.

Ok there are a few issues with this just reading the article alone, Ok Obisity is a problem, not in the US alone, but World wide, its the fact that Technology is making things way to easy for people to do, and obviously without “labor” or “exercise” without those our metabolism goes down, which also means our fat stores and such go up, and then what Boom we get fatter….Its not the food, drinks and such that we take in its how much we do to get rid of the stuff that we put in.
