PostSubject: Round 2: Jrod, I need you to make me a rant   Thu May 31, 2012 4:55 pm

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/05/30/bloomberg-plans-a-ban-on-_n_1557851.html

Huffington Post wrote:
NEW YORK, May 30 (Reuters) - New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg plans to propose a far-reaching municipal ban on sales of large-size sugary beverages by restaurants, mobile food carts, movie theaters and delis, his administration said on Wednesday.

A document outlining the proposal said it was aimed at fighting an epidemic of obesity, citing public health statistics showing that 58 percent of New York City adults and nearly 40 percent of city public school students are obese or overweight.

The proposal defines sugary drinks as beverages that are "sweetened with sugar or another caloric sweetener that contain more than 25 calories per 8 fluid ounces and contains less than 51 percent milk or milk substitute by volume as an ingredient."

It would impact drinks sold in containers larger than 16 ounces, but would not impact the sale of diet soda or dairy-based drinks.

Bloomberg's efforts to correct unhealthy behaviors have included a campaign to cut down on salt and a ban on trans fats in restaurant food, along with a requirement that chain restaurants display calorie counts.

In 2003, the city banned smoking in bars and restaurants, generating howls of protest at the time from smokers and non-smokers who saw it as a case of government creeping into private lives, but the law has since become widely accepted.

The proposed ban on sugary drinks requires the approval of the city's Board of Health. It will submitted to the board on June 12.

In a statement, a spokesman for the New York City Beverage Association challenged Bloomberg's assertion that the consumption of soda was driving obesity rates.

"It's time for serious health professionals to move on and seek solutions that are going to actually curb obesity," said spokesman Stefan Friedman. "These zealous proposals just distract from the hard work that needs to be done on this front." (Reporting by Edith Honan and Steve Gorman; Editing by Cynthia Johnston and Eric Beech)

Ok, this pisses me off. I'm going to do my own rant on this and Jrod, maybe we will make a rant together. As I open my Coca-Cola Vanilla to take a drink of it, I will give you my rant.

First off, let me say that I do agree that one cause of obesity is drinking a lot of soda. I for one drink a lot of soda and I am fat but my uncle drinks 10 times more soda then me a day and weighs a lot less then me. Banning soda is not the solution. If you are going to ban any thing, it should be fast-food restaurants. Coca-Cola, Dr. Pepper, Pepsi, A&W, Mountain Dew, and all the other soda companies will put there hatred for there rivals aside and join hands to repel this stupid ban that can happen. And on top of that, all those companies are more powerful then the NYC mayor. This is like Prohibition, it didn't work the first time, it's not going to work the second time.

If this reaches West Virginia, another NASCAR will form from the bootlegging of Mountain Dew.

If you look at the article, it says this law would only ban large-size soft drinks. Meaning Big Gulps or something.
