Court Rejects New York City's Portion Cap for Sugary Drinks
- Dr. Lisa Firestone
In 2014, Michael Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York, designed a proposal known as the soda ban that would put limits on the size of sugary drinks. The proposal was favored among health advocates, including the Board of Health, who argued that sugary drinks were linked to rising obesity rates and healthcare costs.Pair “Court Rejects New York City’s Portion Cap for Sugary Drinks” with “Letter from Mary Mallon: On Being ‘Typhoid Mary’” and ask students to discuss health and governmental control. To what extent does any authority (especially federal) hold power over personal/national health concerns?
