Just a day has passed and the critics have descended on NYC Mayor Bloomberg’s proposal to limit giant-sized sugary drinks. Some have even noted the harm to the poor beverage companies, who are already suffering because people are waking up and drinking less of the stuff.
Ironically, the diet stuff — poison so harmful that even small quantities have been reported to cause “vascular incidents” in the vast majority of people — would remain ok.
We’re not sure this will work let alone whether it’s a good idea for the government to limit the sale of lawful products. But, on the whole, we’re pleased it’s come up.
Maybe the debate will help wake people up.
