I think they should put a large warning lable on them; but let people make thier own decisions about what they drink.

Only in New York. The king of Liberalism and leader of picking the Socialist government. Hope you, and your sister state of California, fall into the ocean to better the U.S.A.

It's not just the amount, but the high fructose corn syrup. This really bothers me that all the news reports, advice from TV doctors, etc., all say that sugar is a problem. It's not sugar it HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP!!!!! I've read the studies and HFCS is a cause for obesity, liver damage, heart disease, high cholesterol, among a plethora of other problems. To have heard on 60 Minutes that there is no difference between sugar and HFCS is such a lie. HFCS does NOT metabolize at all the same a real cane sugar does. HFCS goes straight to the liver and turns to fat.
The other problem in this country especially, is the over indulgence in food consumption. This doesn't happen in most of Europe which, if you visit most any country, especially Scandinavia, you will not see many (if any) morbidly obese people. These countries also promote bike riding and walking. None of the foods or drinks contain HFCS, most vegetables are served in season, and there are no GMO foods.

I think its funny how angry and upset Americans become over their rights and freedoms being infringed upon by their gov, but have no problem with their government storming into other nations, dictating what is right and wrong for them. haha... we're talking about slowing down the FATTEST nation in the world.
If you care about America, you should care about Americans- and they are dying from being too FAT! (diseases and illness caused by obesity)
Excessive food and sugar comsumption is the leading cause of death in America! You should all be concerned about THAT (just as that mayor is).

I think it's up to people to choose what & how much they want to drink, just put the info out there for people to see what they are putting into their body, and how it will effect them in the long run. I may have a diet soda maybe 4 or less a year, and that's because of what soda does to your teeth.

Look above my comment. There are other's who obviously have the intelligence to decide what is good for them. The government needs to stay the heck out of our choices. Funny how it's perfectly fine to allow the government to end a life, but they certainly cannot have anyone drinking soda! Amazing.

The New York ban on 16oz is ridiculous. With that said, I am on this site because I choose to use my freedom to make my own decision to put healthy foods in my body. I don't need anyone to dictate that to me.

Of course, sugary drinks are not healthy, but really? What part of the government has the right to legalize or take away the legal status of foods such as that. There are far worse health issues to worry about, starting with the BP pollution mess that went pretty much unprosecuted. Years ago, the US outlawed alcohol, and I would have thought we would have learned from Prohibition. This is ridiculous, and does make what the end point would be if we start criminalizing food--put Campbell Soup Company out of business for its sodium levels??
