In September 2012, the New York City Board of Health approved
a measure to ban the sale of large sodas and other sugary drinks in
restaurants, movie theaters, sports arenas and street carts in a first
of its kind restriction in the US. At the forefront of this measure
was Mayor Michael Bloomberg. The mayor noted that 6,000
New Yorkers die every year from obesity-related illness. Some
ethnic groups in the city have rates of overweight and obesity
approaching 70 percent of adults. African-American New Yorkers
are three times as likely, and Hispanic New Yorkers twice as likely,
as white New Yorkers to die from diabetes.1
Is this social policy
run amuck? Is it, as some have suggested, an infringement on
individual rights? Or is it simply recognition that health issues
cannot be treated in isolation from the many other factors that
affect an individual’s or a community’s health?
