There are many, and one of them is this. Once the Nanny State starts banning or restricting certain foods or beverages, they NEVER STOP! Bob Mack knows this truth and discusses it here
You didn’t have to be a Nostradamus to predict this. Once New York City’s nutrition Nazis had assured themselves that no pitchfork wielding mob of angry, soda slurping malcontents was likely to materialize before City Hall demanding the sugar-free head of Chancellor Bloomberg for proposing the mandatory downsizing of their beverages, it was time to declare open season on the compulsive poppers of popcorn and the depraved drinkers of milk. After all, we’re talking National Security here. Michelle Obama said so.
The New York City Board of Health showed support for limiting sizes of sugary drinks at a Tuesday meeting in Queens. They agreed to start the process to formalize the large-drink ban by agreeing to start a six-week public comment period.
At the meeting, some of the members of board said they should be considering other limits on high-calorie foods.
One member, Bruce Vladeck, thinks limiting the sizes for movie theater popcornshould be considered…
Another board member thinks milk drinks should fall under the size limits.
“There are certainly milkshakes and milk-coffee beverages that have monstrous amounts of calories,” said board member Dr. Joel Forman.
