    Sugary drinks over 16oz banned in NYC


    Hard to believe this passed, ( I can see getting rid of absurdly big drinks, but a max size of 16oz to me seems a bit hard to fathom).

    Large sugary drinks are on their way out of New York City restaurants. New York City's Board of Health today passed a rule banning super-sized, sugary drinks at restaurants, concession stands and other eateries.The ban passed Thursday will place a limit of 16-ounces on bottles and cups of sugar-containing sodas and other non-diet sweetened beverages beginning in March 2013.

    Another instance where our government is stepping out of bounds.

    I follow the concept.

    If you order a drink - you will probably drink the whole thing.

    If it is a smaller serving - you will consume fewer calories.

    Doesn't take a genius to figure that out.

    I don't believe government agencies should be limiting choices.

    It is wrong.

    Smokers are treated like lepers used to be in some places - that is wrong also.

    This small minded "we know better than you " attitude is sickening.
