Tell Mayor Bloomberg that Diet Sodas Aren't the Answer!

On June 12, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg will ask the Board of Health to ban the sale of sugary drinks larger than 16 ounces by movie theaters, restaurants, mobile food carts, and delis. The proposal would exempt diet drinks.

There is no doubt that consuming lots of sugary soda is bad for one’s health. Banning large-sized sugary drinks but not diet drinks would merely drive consumers to consume more diet drinks—which are extremely dangerous, potentially more than the drinks they would replace.

Please tell Mayor Bloomberg to check his science and find out how dangerous diet drinks can be!
