Soda Science
Published on October 9, 2012 by Sara Foss

I've written a bit about my decision earlier this year to cut back on soda consumption, and my growing awareness that soda is not exactly the best thing for you.

So I read with interest the recent piece on The Awl by Trevor Butterworth about the debate over whether passing new laws and taxes aimed at reducing soda consumption actually makes any sense.

I've gone back and forth on New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg's measure to bar really large sodas from being sold in certain establishments - at times I think it might be a good idea, at times I think it unnecessarily restricts people's right to eat and drink whatever they please. In any case, Butterworth's piece made me feel a little less guilty about my misgivings, and more willing to question the science.
