Public Health

As expected Mayor Michael Bloomberg's ban on super sized sugary drinks has come in for some criticism. It would be surprising had that not been the case. Mayor Bloomberg is nothing if not persistent. But he also has been consistent and improving the public health is one of his concerns. God bless him.

Whether or not the pundits or the public are willing to admit it, there is reliable knowledge about diet and lifestyle that indicates pathways to good or poor health. Yes, people can chose for themselves but the choices impact their health and cost everyone money. Is this not a public concern and is not Mayor Bloomberg doing his job?

Medical care is not the solution for poor public health and poor public health should not be for a lack of trying.
