Re: “The Richmond Soda War

The logic of the previous post is tortured.

"The abuse of sugar drinks is a symptom, not the cause of these health issues...."

No. The abuse of sweetened drinks is a CAUSE of obesity and diabetes. The biggest single cause, in fact.

Once can debate all day about the socioeconomic or biological issues that cause people to consume these drinks, but there is nothing on the ballot to address that. Certainly people who are down about their work prospects aren't going to make that better by becoming obese.

We've taxed the heck out of tobacco and fewer people are smoking as a result. Sounds like a good model for sugary drinks.
