I know somebody resurrected that old "Coke doesn't make people fat" thread recently, so I thought this might be an interesting addendum to discuss
Patrons of movie theaters, road side carts, restaurants etc will no longer be able to purchase a soft drink larger than 16 oz. Leaving aside any political arguments about personal freedom and nanny state government, does this have any chance of actually affecting obesity? I used to have this little thing I'd do when I drank soda, it's called have another. Refill please!
A friend of mine suggested that if he really wanted to combat obesity he'd rip out the seats in theaters and install treadmills.
