Is this an American Beverage Association ad in disguise? | Food Politics

If the Center for Consumer Freedom (CCF) is placing ads attacking Mayor Bloomberg’s proposal to limit the size of soft drinks to 16 ounces (see yesterday’s post), he [Mayor Bloomberg] must have done something right.

It would be amusing if it wasn’t such a serious topic.  Mayor Bloomberg’s ban on large sugared-drinks in New York City is probably going to make a difference in reducing the intake of sugar by New Yorkers.  Restaurant, food and beverage organizations are moving against him with an ad campaign so they must have decided his ban will affect their profits.  If it reduces profits it will reduce sugar intake – so that’s a backhanded blessing for Mayor Bloomberg’s ban!

    I wrote about this on my blog under, ‘Beware of wolves…’ too bad Bloomberg didn’t do anything worth doing like ban corn as a filler in foods or declare GM foods illegal due to their highly toxic nature and ill effects on our bodies as well as the environment. This soda size law does nothing to improve the health of, Americans.
