New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s proposed ban on large servings of soda has garnered the support of high-profile weight-loss groups including Weight Watchers.
While Bloomberg’s move has been controversial the bottom line is that soda drinks are a significant contributor to obesity. Yet another reason why the availability of bottled water is so important. Healthy hydration on the go can only be achieved by drinking water – whether in a reusable container or one-off use plastic bottle.
It’s unlikely that Australia will follow suit but the debate about the impact of fizzy drinks on public health should continue. We’re certainly happy that we’re in the business of providing pure water to Australians – it’s the only healthy alternative!
