NYC big soda ban proposed by Mayor Michael Bloomberg and the Health Dept. wants to decide what and how much New Yorkers drink.
If Bloomberg has his way, sugary drinks at restaurants, street carts and theaters will be outlawed. The sale of any sweetened drink larger than 16 fluid ounces would be prohibited at deli’s, fast-food chains and sports arenas.
Beverages sold in grocery or convenience stores would be exempt and the measure would not apply to alcohol, diet sodas, fruit juices and milkshakes.

Studies prove aspartame in diet sodas cause severe neurologic, gastrointestinal and psychological problems.
