Awesome, or Overreach?

New York Plans to Ban Sale of Big Sizes of Sugary Drinks 

Chang W. Lee/The New York Times
Mr. Bloomberg on Wednesday with Linda Gibbs, deputy mayor for health. By each soda is the amount of sugar in it.

Soda is awesome at about mile 40 of a a 50-mile race.  It replenishes everything an athlete has been using after 5-6hours of activity.  Whenever I see someone buying soda I think 'good luck on your endurance event'.

  1. i don't get it. if i want more than 16 oz of sugared soda, can't i just buy 2 of them? Am I missing something here? seems like New York is addressing the wrong issue here...kinda like asics and nike manufacturing thick shoes to provide more cushioning instead of teaching people to run properly. :)
