Soda Isn't the Problem, A Lack of Self Discipline Is

When New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg issued a ban on large sugary drinks earlier this year it caused a minor local uproar, that soon became a media frenzy, which eventually escalated into a global conversation. Aside from the hefty legal dilemma (is it a violation of constitutional rights for any government entity to tell us what we can and can’t consume?), the health question is a no brainer.

How Unhealthy is it?

Without exception, soda is always a bad choice. Sorry caffeine lovers, there’s no way around the facts. A widely cited study, lead by the Harvard School of Public Health and published in The New England Journal of Medicine has linked heavy soda consumption to increased rates of obesity. If it seems like the world is soda obsessed it may be because consumption has more than doubled since 1977 and shows no signs of slowing down.
