    As anyone who is into fitness/nutrition will know, the body processes alcohol as a sugar. Exactly the same shit. ITs why beer guts happen.

    If Bloomy and NYC are gonna ban ANY sugary drink over 16oz, will they also ban all beers over 16oz? That, technically, is a sugary drink. Will be interested to see if they realize this.

    Yeah I read that in the paper this morning..........

    Just another example of government being the Nazi's they are.

    I would love to know - in what universe is it the governments business what people eat/drink or ingest???

    This nanny state bullshit has to end...

    I am pretty sure they are eyeing beer/alcohol and looking to ban it, or tax the living fuck out of it until a 40 ounce costs $18.

    Interesting. It used to be, before the Income Tax Amendment, the federal government got MOST of their money from alcohol taxes. What's old may become new again.

    From what I heard a pack of smokes costs $12 in New York, they may look to head the same way with alcohol.

    Beer and Wine are worse for you than soda if not drank in moderation.
    Thus - the OP has an excellent point - and shows, once again - the loony left in motion.

    Yep. I knew I had a great point. NOT because I thought of something or was clever. But just simple science....that the body processes alcohol as a sugar. A beer may as well be a Pepsi, as far as sugar is concerned.

    So, will NYC's massive bar scene, and it's huge alcohol sales, be affected if ALL sugary drinks over 16 oz are banned? Bye bye draft beers, right? Bet Yankee Stadium wont like that.
