Update on August 24, 2012

Over 7,000 of you weighed in on the controversial sugary drink ban and most people feel that the government should not have the authority to limit our freedom of choice. A new poll (http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2012/08/22/nyregion/22nyc-poll.html) conducted by the New York Times reveals a similar sentiment: 60% of New Yorkers think that Mayor Bloomberg's plan to prohibit sales of large sugary beverages in city restaurants, stadiums and movie theaters is a bad idea.

Still, with rising obesity rates in this country, many supporters of the ban point to the potential health benefits of enforcing smaller serving sizes. Do your friends agree? Keep inviting them (http://www.causes.com/causes/621655-health-and-wellness/actions/1657801?open_inviter=trueutm_source=HealthSodaBanWeekly&utm_medium=UpdateEmail&utm_campaign=Health&utm_nooverride=1) to take the poll and add their voices to the national dialogue!
