Taking a page out of Michael Bloomberg’s playbook, one city in Massachusetts has announced its own plans to pursue a version of New York’s controversial soft drink ban:
Cambridge Mayor Henrietta Davis proposed the idea at the City Council’s meeting Monday night, saying she brought the idea forward because of the health risks posed by consuming too much soda.
Davis has ordered health officials to come up with recommendations on how such a ban might be implemented. For its part, New York’s draft proposal prohibits most “food service establishments” from selling sugary sodas in quantities larger than 16 ounces, and some reports suggest Cambridge may toe the same line.#sodaban
The happy healthcare host, Mr. Divabetic is on location in Central Park, New York City to find out people’s reactions to Mayor Bloomberg’s proposed Super Size Soda ban.
