Thursday, May 31, 2012, 11:18 AM ETMayor Michael Bloomberg proposes a sweeping ban in New York City on large-sized sugary drinks at restaurants, movie theaters, and from street vendors in one of the most ambitious local measures to take on obesity. If passed, the new law would prohibit the sale of sodas, pre-sweetened ice teas, and sugar-laced energy drinks larger than 16 ounces. In somewhat twisted logic, New Yorkers could still buy two 16-ounce drinks - instead of one 32-ouncer. On the mayor's radar: DPS, KO, PEP, MNST, COT.
