Soda Nazi NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg;
“The idea here is, you tend to eat all the food in the container in front of you. If it’s a bigger container, you eat more. If somebody put it in a smaller glass or plate or bowl in front of you, you would eat less.
We’re not taking away anybody’s right to do things, we’re simply forcing you to understand that you have to make the conscious decision to go from one cup to another cup.”
It’s not perfect, it’s not the only answer, it’s not the only cause of people being overweight – but we’ve got to do something. We have an obligation to warn you when things are not good for your health.
I would just like to … force the consumer to hopefully move over to the less fattening drinks and everybody will be better off.”
