Nanny Bloomberg in Drag—New York Times Full-Page AD

The Niggling Nanny of New York

“Mayor Bloomberg’s proposal to regulate the size of sugar-sweetened beverages is insulting, paternalistic, and smacks of the police state,” said J. Justin Wilson, CCF’s Senior Research Analyst. “Personal irresponsibility is what got New Yorkers to put on a few extra pounds. And it’s going to take personal responsibility, not a government takeover of our diet, to shed those pounds.”

Bloomberg’s seemingly endless campaign against soft drinks in the Big Apple is absurdly misguided when it comes to promoting weight loss. Study after study has demonstrated that soda is not a unique contributor to obesity. In fact, a recent analysis by the National Cancer Institute found that soda intake actually accounts for less than seven percent of the average person’s daily calories. If Bloomberg and his health department believe dictating the size of soda cups is going to be even a partial solution for obesity, they have bigger problems than we imagined.  Center for Consumer Freedom
