    "His proposal would ban any the sale of any sugary beverage over 16 ounces in any of the city's restaurants, delis, movie theaters or even street carts, according to reports from New York.

    Sales of sweetened drinks larger than 16 ounces would still be permitted in supermarkets and convenience stores"

    They can't watch UFC live? Really?

    It seems a bit silly to ban pop, I mean grown adults should be able to make their own decisions. Looking at it from a different perspective though, some people drink so much god damn pop...it's ridiculous. That stuff is so horrible for the body in every imaginable way.

    I agree with the health perspective 100%, when I stopped drinking pop all together, the result was ridiculous. That and diabetes and obesity are huge costs to the health industry, why should other people be paying for your crappy decision making abilities.

    This will just cause places to lower the cup sizes and give refills?

    LOL, word! I forget where I wasin the US but at a Mcdonalds, I ordered a "supersized" meal, and their large musta been twice as big as ours lol.

    As for UFC.... took forever to make that shit legal in the first place. Remember when they had to fight on Indian reservations etc??

    Banning large sodas will not help the obesity problem...

    If you want to make a serious stab at the obesity problem, set up mandatory information sessions on nutrition, ban bad fast food restaurants (McDonalds, BurgerKing, etc..), and force mandatory work out sessions for those that are obese.

    The above will never happen in a million years, but passing a law like this and passing it off as "help the obesity problem" is ridiculous. If people want to be fat slobs and drink huge pops all day, while eating McDonalds and Wendys, they will. Reducing the amount they can drink at one time will only make them buy, or get free, refills

    Dumb law is dumb.

    These laws are dumb, instead of solving the real problem, such as corn syrup, they just limit consumer choices.

    The real problem is they're trying to legislate stupid.

    It's funny you mention this. If there was a law banning the production/distribution of tobacco products, I would be happy!

    And this coming from a pack-and-a-half per day smoker!

    Sort of. PC's wanna sue Tobacco for $10billion, when they make MORE IN TAXES than Tobacco in sales profits off each pack.

    So, the Province (er, or is that Pimps) should sue themselves.

    I haven't had a soft drink since April 1 this year, using the nutritional info from the side of a Coke can, I reduced my caloric intake by ~600 calories a day and 180g of sugar. With going to the gym, lost almost 20lbs since. Easier to get to sleep, don't feel tired for the whole first half of the day.

    I don't think this change will have any effect on anything really. Why do they not simply impose a "fat tax" on pop, fast food, and things of it's type. I've noticed most of the fatties look like they belong to the "poorer classes" of society. Just an observation, not trying to say it's fact here. If you make fast food more expensive, maybe them poorer fatties will be forced to spend money on cheaper healthier alternatives. If we do it to tobacco and booze, why not junk food?

    Exactly. Tax shitty food, use tax money to subsidize healthy food.
