Philly Mayor Backs Big Gulp Ban

Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter is backing Bloomberg's proposed ban on large servings of sugary drinks.
“Sugary drinks, like soda, fruit drinks and sweetened teas, are the single largest sources of sugar in the American diet,” Nutter said, according to the text of his speech. “On average, Americans drink 20 ounces of soda a day,” he said, adding that Bloomberg’s proposed ban on sugared sodas larger than 16 ounces "is worth evaluating."
