Law To Ban Oversized Sodas Moves Forward

Restaurant and theater goers that are used to indulging on oversized sodas might want to start paying attention to legislation that’s been proposed in New York City.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg is proposing a ban on the sale of large sodas and other sugary drinks in the city’s restaurants, delis and movie theaters in the hopes of combating obesity — an expansion of his administration’s efforts to encourage healthy behavior by limiting residents’ choices.

If passed, a 16-ounce maximum limit would be imposed on the sale of all soda pop – whether on a grocery store shelf, snack bar fountain, or at the convenience store.

Proponents argue that the reduced sizes would help combat obesity.  Defenders of the super-sized sodas say that it should be their own personal right as to how much of a product they consume.

New York City legislators are expected to vote this morning.
