Sugary drinks such as soda greatly contribute to the obesity epidemic in this country, the absolute ignorance as to what most consumers willingly put into their body is shocking. The fatter the population you have = more people with healthcare problems = a higher rate that people pay on their health insurance premiums, even those who are responsible and demonstrate a healthy lifestyle. You can argue against the effectiveness of the law, but its core objective does have some merit.

By that logic then we should have forced abortions to control the population. Less people means less money having to be spent.

The obesity epidemic is really US-specific and specific to the past 20 years (at the most).
There's no obesity epidemic in Europe nor in any other well-fed part of the world and there's no ban of sodas there.
Also, there was no ban of sodas nor was there a famine in the US prior to the US obesity epidemic.

Bring the Liberal pseudo-intellectuals.

I am utterly stumped by what point you are trying to communicate. Please refine and further polish what your trying to say if you have something intelligent to add. Americans DO have an abnormally high consumption of soft drinks, especially compared to that of Europe, even a quick google search verifies that. (www You need to login to view this link We consume near double the amount of the runner-up, Canada. Your out of your ******* mind if you think that is not indicative of a problem. And your right, there is not a large obesity epidemic in Europe. That's due to a myriad of different factors, one of them certainly being less soda consumption, as evident by the graph.

Americans have developed some of worst eating habits in the world thanks to the new era of high-calorie/low-nutrient foods. Your a moron if you cant see why there needs to be some restraint, because at this present time most Americans do not possess any.
