          A study was done in Harvard have linked 180,000 deaths in a year worldwide and 25,000 in the USA alone with the consumption of sugary beverages. This study was done a week after the judge blocked New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s proposed ban on super sized sodas (http://gma.yahoo.com/video/gma-nyc-super-sized-soda-080000755.html) , and one day after Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant signed a bill preventing municipalities from setting limits on soda and salt content. A 16 oz soda has 27 cubes of sugar, that is simply insane. It also depends on people and themselves and how they want to take care of their health but I think it would be a great way to get people more aware of the drinks people are drinking and not thinking about the health problems that link on to it.

         If there was a law trying to ban sugary drinks I would vote ‘yes’ on it because that’s how children start early getting diabetes at age 2 and then later in life have more serious problems like cardiovascular disease and even cancer. If the government would try to ban sugary drink then we might have less people getting sick and there wouldn’t be as much people getting sick and obesity level would fall.
