FOOD POLICE: Mayor Bloomberg's Soda Ban Proposal Could Include... POPCORN
City health weasels go ‘pop’

Mayor Bloomberg’s proposed ban on sugary drinks larger than 16 ounces could also include massive buckets of buttery movie-theater popcorn, as far as members of his Board of Health are concerned.

“The popcorn isn’t a whole lot better than the soda,” said Bruce Vladeck, a senior adviser at Nexera Consulting and one of the mayor’s appointees to the 11-member board.

The board yesterday agreed to put Bloomberg’s big-soda ban up for a public hearing July 24, but also talked about the merits of limiting other high-calorie treats.

Now thats funny!! It doesn't matter that the economy is so bad we can't afford the "big" popcorn. But lets ban the popcorn. OMG..

Do you think they are worried about that in Iraq, Pakistan, Syria, or any other country that doesn't even have food to live on?

What a fucked up world!

The lumbering cows in the USA can't seem to control themselves, the time has come to treat them like the children they are. Decent people won't be affected by this since they don't order pitchers of soda and tubs of popcorn.

If popcorn goes, you can say goodbye to half of your city's dentists. Broken and chipped teeth due to eating popcorn (oh, and don't forget Corn Nuts) accounts for roughly half of their business...

Well I guess now that NYC is now the "utopia" that Bloomberg had always hoped for, and free of issue, he can now concentrate on the important stuff like popcorn and soda.

If I remember correctly he also put out legislation to ban salt on dining tables at restaurants a year or so ago, that obviously failed.

For being the Mayor of a city such as NYC, you would like to think he had a better grasp of priorities.

The miswestern corn farmers will put a hit out for Bloomberg. That will kick off the Corn War that devastates the world when it escalates to include wheat rice and oats.

Monsanto is not going to like this one bit, I am sure you're onto something now that I think about it. Did someone in Monsanto piss him off? Sodas are made with high fructose corn syrup which is derived from corn and popcorn is also apart of Con Agra foods, which is supplied by monsanto. Im going to google around for Con Agra and Bloomberg to see what I find. Great investigating!!!

Instead of banning larger contained items, how about going after GMO's and other shit like HFCS and the garbage they put in fast food. Even a better idea would be to double or triple the price of fast food and reduce the price of organic and natural fruit's, vegetables by 80%. Maybe the public will eat more healthy foods if they could afford them.

Control of any substance always leads to overuse..it's human nature for God sakes!!

Good. Popcorn is also full of corn syrup shite. Sometimes people need to be saved from themselves, this stuff is crap. All of it. Glad someone finally has the sense to put a stop to it and ban all that crap. The corporations making the shit should be banned too.

Seriously?? I love to eat popcorn while in the theater - what I do not do is ask for butter.

Popcorn (w/salt) actually seems good for me as it tends to clear my bowels nice and clean. I don't see a damn thing wrong with a big 'ole bowl of popcorn from time to time. Nothing at all. But - do not pour on the butter! Seems pretty simple enough.

Recommend you stop eating it! If I understand this issue correctly, the topic is popcorn in the Theaters - air popped stuff - not microwave crap.

There is nothing saturating the popcorn in a Theater except for the buttery stuff people ask for.

Problem? Perhaps... Solution: Quit Asking For The Buttery Stuff.
