    NYC bans big, sugary drinks at eateries, theaters

    NEW YORK (AP) - New York City's health board has passed a rule banning super-sized, sugary drinks at restaurants, concession stands and other eateries.

    The regulation passed Thursday puts a 16-ounce size limit on cups and bottles of non-diet soda, sweetened teas and other calorie-packed beverages.

    The ban will apply in fast-food joints, movie houses and Broadway theaters, workplace cafeterias and most other places selling prepared food.

    It doesn't cover supermarkets or most convenience stores.

    City health officials say the ban is necessary to combat a deadly obesity epidemic.

    The restaurant and beverage industries have assailed the plan as misguided. They say the city's health experts are exaggerating the role sugary beverages have played in making Americans fat.

    Some New Yorkers have also ridiculed the rule as a gross government intrusion.
    "Watch what people are cynical about, and one can often discover what they lack.” -- Gen. George S. Patton

    Make fat people pay more for health insurance, then I wouldn't care about them being fat asses.

    I don't think this is the right way to go, but I can understand the thought behind it.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    what excellent governance.

    PS - it's not like they just can't buy two sodas. Or in the case of most fast food places just walk up to the fountain and refill the damn drink.

    Not to mention they fill most of those super sized cups with ice. At the movies you get more ice than drink when you order those really big cups. It's a scam. A way to cut corners and make extra money while offering you nothing extra in the process.

    my pop choice is consistently "diet coke, no ice". Unless I haven't slept the nice before then it's "give me the most caffeine you can and I don't care if Double Down thinks it's a bad idea"

    Quit cola so long ago that now I can't fathom anymore why anyone over 12 would ever want one. Cheap whiskey, maybe?

    Not gonna make any friends here, but cola is as pointless as cigarettes - it serves no real purpose and is actually antithetical to its supposed purpose.
    I barely drink anything with my meals. You just don't need it.

    Not a big fan of bans, but I like that NY is saying 'get a hold of yourselves you fat twats' as only NY can. Seriously, enough with the Coke already.

    wait til they ban any alcoholic beverage bigger than a shot glass. Can certainly make just as good a case for that.
