Sodas are about to get a lot smaller in New York City as Bloomberg's soda ban was officially approved. Several businesses will not be allowed to sell sugary beverages over 16 oz soon.
On Thursday,New York City's Board of Health approved Mayor Michael Bloomber's plan to ban large sugary drinks. The proposal was approved in a 8-0 vote. One member, Dr. Sixto Caro abstained from voting.
The unprecedented regulation, which was proposed in the spring, will apply to all restaurants, fast-food joints, delis, movie theaters, Broadway theaters, workplace cafeterias, sports stadium and food carts. All of these businesses will not be allowed to sell sugary drinks including non-diet sodas, teas and even certain coffees that are larger than 16 oz.

Do they even have 16 oz cups in movie theaters?
If I wanted to kill my unborn baby in NYC - no problem. But if I want for a supersize soda, I’ve gone too far...the “it’s my body and I can do with it what I want” argument only works sometimes?
