Here is a good article as to why our mayor, Mr. Bloomberg, introduced banning sodas 16 and over ounces. Read. He was doing it for people's protection....

I wish Mr Bloomberg would personally go through my unwatchamacallit garbage which I place in a NYC municipal "bloombergcan" garbage can.

It's a dollars and cents issue. It's as simple as that. Fat people get sick more and run up much larger tabs in the health system. And healthy people have to pay for that through higher insurance premiums and higher medical expenses because a good portion of obese people have no health insurance.

Healthy people pay for obese people. Think of it as the fatso tax. The way to remedy that is to decrease the number of fat people. Cutting way back on sugary junk drinks is a good way to start, since they're a big contributor to obesity.

Yes, some people are obese for reasons that have nothing to do with their diet. But they are the minority of obese people. Taxing tobacco with escalating taxes and limiting access to tobacco products has significantly cut into tobacco-related health costs. The same approach with junk drinks will work. Less fat people means a healthier society with a smaller healthcare bill.
