NYC Soda Ban Explained: Gotta-See Video

//

Much of the United States has heard of the so-called "Soda Ban" discussed by Mayor Bloomberg in New York City. Though most of us (myself included) don't know much about it.

This short opinion-documentary attempts to explain the ideas behind the ban. The filmmaker got 67 pages of documents from the mayor's office and explored how various restaurants would be affected. His results might surprise you, the "ban" doesn't have teeth with every restaurant or type of beverage.

Ultimately, the Mayor's plan has cultivated a conversation about obesity and its causes; that has to be one of the results they hoped for. via Devour
