Health experts in New York want to widen the proposed ban on super-sized soda to include juices, milk shakes and even popcorn, it emerged today.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg plans to outlaw sugary drinks over 16 ounces (1 pint) in the city's restaurants, delis, food trucks, movie theatres and sporting arenas.
Now officials charged with deciding on whether it should come into force have suggested they would be in favour of incorporating other unhealthy snacks.

Insane, illogical morons. By the time they're done, the neo-Victorian statists will have everyone eating specific administered doses of tofu and white beans.
And who is the pudgy little bastard Bloomberg to tell ANYONE how to be healthy?
First they came for the soda...
Hey Dumberg, I’m going to buy a Whitman’s Sampler and eat it. Try to stop me!
This is beyond stupid.
ahhh, they’re all on the take from Big Veggie...
I just came back from a business trip in Japan. I didn’t see ten fat Japanese the entire trip. Mostly, I attribute that to the better-quality foods and smaller portions. Americans eat too damn much crap.
With that said, I’m all for pushing public awareness on eating issues and banning New York politicians
So when do they step over the line and get charged with practicing medicine without a license?
A Nazi with a Jewish surname. I’m very confused.
Hmm, and Sumo wrestling(big fat men) is not the national sport of Japan, correct?
No food for you, NY!
Seems if there are some non-communist NYers, they would start a recall and force this nazi mayor to spend some of his millions to defend this intrusion into their lives.
Once you let this nazi get away with what he has done and is doing there are no limits.
If NYers do not start a recall campaign immediately then they should STFU as it will be their fault this scum of the earth has been allowed to get away with this.
How soon will these dolts ban candy? Only logical.
All types of bread and pasta are fattening. Ban them!
George Soros was a Jewish Nazi collaborator.
I hope he doesn’t plan to eat more than one serving size at a time. That means no more than approximately 15 cheez-its a day for you Mr. B.
I have lived with two obese kids-young adult. It is easier to keep an alcoholic away from booze than to keep an obese person away from food. If you ban certain foods or try to monitor their use of food they simply find a work around.
Also, these very obese kids avoid overeating in front of anyone person and avoid being seen eating real high calorie foods.
They compensate by eating multiple meals with multiple people, eating very fast and spreading out their caloric intake over several foods. They are every bit as covert as an addict. Banning foods will not make one fat person lose wait.
We'll all be surfing the internet from treadmills!
Ice cream shops
heavy whipping cream
Here's an idea Bloomberg. Ban cheap, toxic, Chinese goods!!
This non-sense is the exact reason millions of folks don't trust republicans not to mention democrats.
Bunch-a socialist pricks. I know how to live your life better than you.
“It is the butter and salt which makes it less than healthy.”
But it’s soo good!
Popcorn? Why not potato chips, pizza, lasagna, ice cream and a host of other calorie-rich snacks?
First they came for my Big Gulp. Then they came for my popcorn but when they came for my ice cream....that’s when we go to WAR!
