Mayor Bloomberg’s soda ban in New York is hilarious because it doesn’t apply to aspartame-based “diet sodas” but puts a ban on regular sodas based on HFCS which is far less damaging than aspartame. HFCS might cause obesity and diabetes but aspartame causes neurological diseases like Alzheimer’s. So be ready to confront a new set of zombies in New York.
This soda ban will create a new black market of soda. Crime will rise and customers will have to buy sodas from black-marketers. The result – instead of buying soda legally, people will buy soda from dark alleys where crime is frequent! Then the government will set up a new soda prohibition task force or declare a “war on soda” like the ‘“war on drugs.” And, it becomes another inclusion in the list of incidents that make up a vicious circle.
The problem with creating new laws is that you criminalize a segment of the population. So, instead of doing something good, the government curbs public freedom. You can’t just put a ban on soda if a person chooses to have it. What you can do is increase the awareness on the adverse effects of soda on health. But by implementing a soda ban, Mayor Bloomberg is treating people like “stupid” children and hurting their dignity. It’s becoming a situation where you want to control every single detail of a person’s life.
This decision by the nanny state government will only increase obesity and diabetes because most of these diseases are caused by a lack of vitamin D, selenium, zinc or magnesium. And, soda does nothing to supplement people with these nutrients. A ban on soda won’t push people towards a healthier lifestyle, exercise or a balanced diet.
The basic point is people are becoming sicker. But a ban or enforcing a law can’t make them healthier. It has to be their personal choice. A ban will only make people lose their freedom.
