New York, NY - Amid New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s ban on big sodas — taking effect in March — are some details that may have been overlooked.

Say goodbye to that 2-liter soda with your pizza delivery, pitchers of soft drinks at your kid’s birthday party and some bottle-service mixers at your favorite nightclub, The New York Post reports http://t.co/fIjaDUllz4  .

The mayor’s new rules prohibit restaurants from serving or selling soda in containers larger than 16 ounces.

The rules will force consumers to pay more for smaller containers. Under the ban, they would have to buy six 12-ounce cans at an average cost of $7.50 to get an equivalent amount of a $3 2-liter bottle.

So now it comes out. This has nothing to do with our health and everything to do with the 5 cent deposit on cans and bottles. Maybe VIN should get SodaStream to advertise and restaurants and pizza stores to drop their no outside food allowed regarding sodas.

I know most of us feel the mayor has no right to meddle with our food and beverage choices. We are adults, right? But we do make poor choices, especially about drinks. Sodas, particularly diet ones, don't properly hydrate the body. They induce weight gain - yes, even the diet ones! We don't drink enough water, Yidden. Do yourself and your children a favor. Google these two words: dehydration and depression. We all need water - just water. Not the water in soda nor in coffee or even juices. How much water do you need daily? Divide your weight by two. The answer is the number of ounces in just water your body needs daily. So a 140 lb person needs 70 ounces of water a day. A 200 lb person needs 100 oz/day. The mayor has some chochmah. Let's find the good in it.

Your water numbers are very high, and may harm. There have been deaths due to overdosing on water. You say a 200 lb man needs 100 ounces of water. That is over 12 glasses. Some articles recently have said that even the oft-recommended 8 glasses is too much.

When you are thirsty, drink water. If not, don't. Let your body be the guide.

Put a health warning if you want on soda bottles, right next to the required recycling notices, but let the customer buy, eat and drink whatever he wants. This law is clearly overstepping and extremely wrong.

Even those who don't eat pizza or drink soda should be concerned because these dictators will come for you next.

Meanwhile a pizza pie is usually not eaten by one person, it is split by several. The same with soda, it's poured into cups and shared by several people. Now they have to pay more for what they order because of this insanity. This mayor and the supporters of this law are a disgrace.

In the spirit of Purim, welcome to the funny house - or is it the Twilight Zone.

And he should bring a paper from his doctor that he is not overweight!

Bloomberg will also implement fares for buses and subways that will be based on weight. The logic is that if it takes more fuel to transport a heavier person, that expense should be passed on to the consumer. Conversely, people who properly diet and exercise and therefore weigh less should pay less.

you re correct ..too much water dilutes electrolytes ...its called Hyponatremia too much water can cause an electrolyte disturbance ...

marathon runners who only drink water throughout the race are at risk...thats why they recomend 1/2 water 1/2 cup gatorade each mile (until mile 20 after which nothing matters)

Well, that at least has some logic and is fair in a way, why should luggages be the only one...lol

Anyways, don't complain; the next will be, Bloomy will tweak that part, and demand cups with lines should be sent along with the soda bottle, and each person can only recieve up to the second line...(remember those days? they are back!)

won't it be bad for the environment to have 6 small bottels trashed rather than 1 big one?

So let me be sure I understand: Bloomberg won't allow to buy a two liter soda when i take out my family out to dinner, but I can buy as many cartons of cigarettes as I like without a peep from him?

I mean, so long as I pay the incredibly high taxes on cigarette sales, cancer is okay, but obesity is not?
