This is crap! Totally! Maybe they'll soon start telling us "how to sleep with your wife". Or Soon they'll be thinking on how to make us all "Robots" so we all can get to behave in a certain way conjured up by one man or a group! WE ARE HUMANS morons! and you know, variety is the spice of life! Even the ones you do not like! (OK! Hey, I've got an idea, instead of sugar why don't we all start taking bitter drinks, maybe that'll help!)

Instead of spending time, energy and money on this proposal, we should be focusing on educating people about healthy eating and way to prevent diabetes and obesity. We are responsible for our own well-being. With a ban on 16+oz. soda, anybody can grab 2 sodas instead. While this may discourage people from buying extra soda, it doesn't change the deep rooted habits of drinking soda.

Just some sizes should be regulated. People do not always make the best choices. If you want more than the 16 ounces just open a second can but it will help kids who have limited funds to spend not buy the second can. I would like some help for sugary drink in reducing sugar and also in other products that are to salty. We like to spoil ourselves. I found that in Europe where less salt is used, I ate less because it was not as tasty. We crave salts and sugars. It is costing the...

I found that in Europe where less salt is used, I ate less because it was not as tasty. We crave salts and sugars. It is costing the medicals to much money by being obese. We need to get back to being slimmer. Fat, diabetes, heart disease, stroke and all sorts of other medical problems would be eased just by cutting back on the salts and sugars. Not all people are able to resist the good tasting but bad for you foods. give them a little help. It could be for a set period of time, say ten years and then see if the health of the nation has impoved. Not all government interventions are bad.

It's all about a mindset, habits & emotional eating. No government regulation is going to change a person on the inside, from which healthy habits will need to come from.

After they tell you how much you can have then they will tell what your allowed to have. Then what you can and can't eat and watch on tv it will just get ugly. Long live freedom!!!

Parents should be held responsible for that situation. When the parents should just switch beverages for their kds like kool-aid.

I gave up soda 12 weeks ago. I was a diet coke addict. All I know is I feel so much now that I have stopped drinking it. We americans do drink too much sugar and too much aspartame and other sugar substitutes that are horrible for our bodies and can be found in our water.

It appears that the ones that answered NO doesn't think about the health of the their own person, of their children or simply they already have obesity problems and either they accepted that or doesn't recognize it as a problem. Either way, it is sad, from all the points of view, from the plenitude of health problems (leading inevitable to an early death) to the amount of money spent on such beverages (and food, also). Obesity is not about the fashion or the looks of one, it is about the...
