Apparently, New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg just hasn't exercised his nanny state card enough with his "big gulp" ban and now the NYC Board of Health, whose members were chosen by Bloomberg, is looking to target milkshakes and popcorn. I have a feeling movie theatres will be making a statement about this one.
At a meeting Tuesday, members of the New York City Board of Health expressed support for Bloomberg's proposal. They then started brainstorming other ways to cut the fat, according to MyFoxNY.com.
Member Bruce Vladeck proposed limiting movie-theater popcorn containers.
"The popcorn isn't a whole lot better than the soda," he said.
Since the big gulp ban surfaced two weeks ago, Bloomberg has fully defended his push for the government to control what people can and cannot eat, saying it's the government's "role" to improve public health.
