Food in the News: NYC Soda Ban

While tuning in to CNN the other day, I learned of a possible "NYC Soda Ban" that Mayor Bloomberg was attempting to pass in an attempt to slow down the high obesity stats. It appears, however, his efforts have since been overturned.

I am not and have never really been a huge fan of soda. Every once in a while I will crave a Sprite or Ginger Ale, but that is very rare.

What are your thoughts? Is this worth taking a closer look? Even though I do not drink soda's or "pop" as I've called it growing up in the Midwest, I think that people should have the freedom to choose, but also become aware of the risks associated with consumption.

  1. Free will is a great gift, but sometimes I do wish the iron fist would lay down the law to save me from myself when it comes to overindulging. The value of clean eating didn't really hit home for me until I knew folks who, sadly, didn't survive the temptations to the detriment of their own survival. I wonder what the mayor's next move will be.
