The fight to ban large sugary sodas in New York City may not be over after all.
The Democratic mayoral hopeful has been a critic of some of Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s policies, but agrees with the mayor on one controversial issue.
Researchers found that when mice ate a diet of 25 percent extra sugar females died at twice the normal rate.
While the city’s pending ban on super-sized sugary drinks has its share of critics, the story of a Brooklyn eatery denying Mayor Michael Bloomberg a second slice of pizza over it – and starting an obscenity-laden fight – is not true.
New York Supreme Court Judge Milton Tingling ruled Monday that the city may not enforce the new regulation, which would have put a 16-ounce limit on sugary drinks — both bottled and fountain.
For the mayor, it’s a sugar smack down, and while he’s not going to make people take a “sugarlizer” test, he is taking giant steps to limit the size of sugary drinks people can buy.
