Still Get Big Sweet Drinks in NY

New York judge sours ban on the size of sweet-drinks.

Several months ago we reported that New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg intended to limit the serving size of sugar-laden sodas. Now a N.Y. Supreme Court judge has ruled that ban as unconstitutional and "fraught with arbitrary and capricious consequences." Indeed there were loopholes in this proposed rule. Hot chocolate would have been limited to small or medium sized cups, but milkshakes of any size could be served (because they are more than 51% milk).

PositiveTip: Limit your intake of sweetened drinks by the choice yourself!
