One thought on “N.Y. Mayor Bloomberg: ‘Ban’ on large sugary drinks ‘in the country’s interest’”

  1. People don’t die of “too much food”, the mayor’s statement to the contrary. People die of heart disease and diabetes, and possibly diet contributes to those problems, and possibly obesity does. As our host has noted many times, the links between diet, obesity, and health outcomes are far weaker than the nannies want to tell us.
    The incidence of eating to the point of death, comparable to starvation or malnutrition, is nearly zero.
    We’ve had reports of people who drank two gallons of soda every day and died young and the world’s heaviest man died young, but any reasonable person will see those as anecdotes and outliers.
