New York to Ban Large Soft Drinks


Mayor Michael Bloomberg has banned smoking in New York City, as well as Trans-fats in restaurants, and he had forced chain restaurants to put calorie counts on menus, and he got sugary soft drinks out of city and school vending machines. Now, with his continued efforts to curb obesity, and lower the cost of health care in New York, Bloomberg is calling for a municipal ban on the sale of sugary drinks of greater than 16 ounces.
