New York's big soda ban passes
- Forbes contributor Nadia Arumugan believes the soda ban will work in the fight against obesity because regulating food has a proven record, especially in New York City.
- NPR discusses how upset many people are over this ban, and why that might have more to do with our emotional attachment to food in general than our actual attachment to soda.
- Some of the details of the ban are mentioned in the Washington Post. Convenience stores will still be allowed to sell fountain sodas bigger than 16 ounces, but restaurants, theaters, and concession stands will not.
- Better health education would be preferable to the soda ban, argues Julianna Joss, a teen who is a contributor Huffington Post. She believes a simple high school course on healthy eating would be a good place to start.
