NYC Proposes Ban on Large Sugary Drinks [VIDEO]
New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg plans to stop the sale of sodas and other sugary drinks larger than 16 ounces at restaurants and other locations in the city.
FOX News Radio’s Courtney Kealy reports from New York:
It’s the most ambitious plan yet of Mayor Bloomberg’s in the city’s fight against obesity. Sugary drinks larger than 16 ounces, about the size of a medium coffee and smaller than a common soda bottle, will be banned from restaurants, movie theaters, and street carts. The ban could be in effect as early as next March.
This man says people will find ways to get their sugary super size drinks anyway:
(Consumer) “I think soda is really unhealthy and I don’t see any reason you need to drink 20 ounces of soda and you can always buy another one.”
Any business who violates the ban would be fined $200 per sale.
In New York, Courtney Kealy, FOX News Radio.
Editor’s Note: The proposal will be submitted to the Board of Health on June 12, which will mark the beginning of a three-month comment period before a vote.
