New York Soda Size Ruling - Politics Win Over Sound Health Policy

>> Monday, April 8, 2013

In the midnight hour (literally), a restriction on sugary drink size that was about to go into effect in New York was struck down by a judge.  Health care providers across the continent heaved a sigh of disappointment and sadness, as this move was widely viewed as a leadership step in making some important societal changes to help manage the obesity endemic.

The New England Journal of Medicine published an excellent editorial discussing the decision.  I'd love to hear what you think about this - please submit your comments and ideas by clicking on the comments link at the bottom of this blog!

As a medical doctor, Endocrinologist, and obesity specialist, I am absolutely passionate about helping people with weight management. Though there is certainly no magic cure for obesity, there IS a successful treatment plan out there for you - it is all about understanding the elements that contribute to your personal weight struggle, and then finding the treatment plan that suits your needs and your lifestyle. The way to finding your personal solution is to learn as much as you can about obesity: how our toxic environment has shaped us into an overweight society; the diversity of contributors to obesity; and what the treatment options out there are really all about. Knowledge Is Power!!
