Court Toon: Sugary Hiccup Over NYC Soda Ban

New York City’s soda ban is set to go into effect on March 12 – banning all businesses from selling sugary drinks over 16 oz. The average American drinks 45 gallons of sugary soft drinks a year, equivalent to one-and-a-half barrels of soda pop. In fact, sugary sodas are the single largest source of calories in the American diet. Even the smallest can, the eight-ounce size, has the equivalent of approximately six sugar cubes. The 20-ounce size has around 14 sugar cubes and the 7-Eleven “Super Big Gulp” more than 30 cubes.
