Bloomberg to Ban Milk Drinks?
We've probably all heard of Mayor Bloomberg's idea to ban large sodas in New York City, but what about the plan to forbid milkshakes? Buttery popcorn and sugary milk-based drinks might be at stake this September.
First it was large, sugary soft drinks. Now, the New York City diet police want to take away moviegoers’ jumbo tubs of popcorn as well.
The city’s Board of Health plans to hold a public hearing on July 24 on Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s proposal to ban sales of 16-ounce soft drinks in restaurants, movie theaters, and sports arenas. Bloomberg says getting rid of the supersized, high-calorie beverages will help stem the obesity epidemic.
