New York Soda Ban – Steps Towards Health or Infringement?

New York Soda BanBy now we have all heard about the New York Soda Ban law that could go into effect around May 12th. The law will prohibit restaurants, theaters, fast-food and office cafeterias from offering sugary drinks like soda any larger that 16 ounces. So this means no more pitchers of sodas at the bowling ally or at your kids birthday party at the pizza party if it is at a restaurant. Many restaurants and other companies that will be effected by the new law are scrambling to change their cups, get rid of pitchers and informing customers of the new laws. Some people see the soda ban as a way to help with the horrific obesity rates that are happening not only in New York, but world wide, while some simply see it as unnecessary and an infringement on personal freedom.

New York Soda Ban Cost Customers More

Not all businesses are effected by the soda ban law. Most high-end restaurants don’t serve soda’s any larger than 12 ounces, and convenient stores are not effected due to the fact that they are not under the purview of the NY Department of Health. In a post shared by “OutsidetheBeltway.com” they share the irony in the safety of the Big Gulp;

Ironically, considering that the Big Gulp was the poster boy for the ban when it was first announced—consumers were buying massively more high calorie soda because 7/11 was nudging them to do so by charging just a few pennies more than the price of a reasonably sized beverage—it’s not effected by the ban. AP reports, “The rule applies to restaurants, fast-food chains, theaters, delis and office cafeterias, but not convenience stores or supermarkets [emphasis mine].” – See more at: http://www.outsidethebeltway.com/bloomberg-big-soda-ban-dumber-than-we-thought/#sthash.bfTdDa5z.dpuf

Customers will see smaller cups and prices will more than likely be close to the same, so you are getting less for your buck. If you have that kids pizza party at their favorite pizza place, instead of a pitcher of soda that would normally cost you around $3, you will have to buy smaller bottles or cans that for the same amount ounces of the pitcher, would cost your around $7.  Businesses will see effects as well. Many businesses are expecting to lose as much as $500 – $700 a week due to the ban. We all know that these businesses will make changes to make up the cost, and that will result in the customer paying more for other products and services.

New York Soda Ban and Obesity

Michael Bloomberg set this amendment back in September of 2012 as an attempt to combat the obesity problem. Obesity has been a huge strain on the medical industry, and it looks like New York spends $4.7 billion every year on obesity-related costs, and according to the NY Department of Health, 64% of New Yorkers are overweight or obese.

Mayer Bloomberg stated after the ruling in favor of the soda ban, ““We’ve taken bold action in New York City because obesity is a national epidemic that’s only getting worse, and we’re not just going to wring our hands about it,”  Obesity is becoming a tremendous problem and strain on the medical industry all over the world. It has jumped as the number 1 worldwide medical epidemic, just over people dying of starvation.  In New York, an estimated 5,000 people die each year due to obesity-related complications.

What are your thoughts on the New York Soda Ban Law?

There are a lot of thoughts and opinions pertaining to the New York Soda Ban. Many feel that this a great way to tackle an issue that is killing people every year that can be prevented, while other folks say that soda bans will not change the obesity problem, and it is an infringement on personal freedoms we have as Americans. It could be helpful, and it also can be a strain on the wallets of New York businesses, as well as the consumers.

What do you think? Is this a necessary move towards health, or is this just a move to show Bloomberg’s right to do what he wants? You tell me!

KwikMed Customer Reviews and Comments

It means a lot to hear feedback from our customers. When we receive these great emails and letters, we always respect the privacy of our customers – we don’t include names, just your words of praise. Here are some of our actual customer comments:

“I have had a prescription for Viagra for two years now, I just feel embarrassed to keep asking him to remember to write me one when I go in for a check up. I get the feeling that he is in control of my sex life and because of my profession I feel very embarrassed to ask for ED medication. ”

“I read about your organization in the Wall Street Journal several years ago. They said you were very good and ethical. I agree.”

“The package of meds arrived here early this morning. What fantastic service! Thanks a LOT.”

“I just wanted to let you know that I am very impressed with your company. My recent order was handled in an exceptional manner. From the confirmation telephone call from one of your employees, to the email from the doctor, and finally the arrival of the product. You are doing a great job and are of a real and genuine service for the millions of men that suffer from ED.”

“I would like to thank all of you at KwikMed for the extremely professional manner in which you conduct business. I recently emailed KwikMed a question regarding the use of Cialis with a blood pressure medication and much to my surprise my reply came in the form of a telephone call from doctor __. I thank you for your promptness in processing orders and in shipping medication and I would like to personally thank Dr. __ for the telephone call.”

“I just thought I would email you to let you know that I received my order safely and I am absolutely delighted with the results. This has given me a new lease on life doing wonders for my confidence and self esteem. The fact that I suffer from no after/side effects whatsoever was also a bonus!”

“This is the opposite of a complaint — high praise for your company. Please pass it on to someone who us interested in knowing how professionally your customer service works. I’ve been traveling since my last order and only now have time to acknowledge what seems to me to be a sharp counterpoint to the blather I occasionally read from politically ambitious critics of your industry. Last time I ordered, I must have inadvertently hit a button that said I had experienced “side effects.” Within hours, I had an email from a doctor asking to talk to me about these side effects. He made it quite clear that my order had been put on hold until this matter was cleared up. I told the doctor I had made a mistake and there were no side effects. A few hours later one of your associates called on the phone to confirm. I know for a fact I would NOT have gotten that quality of medical attention at my HMO. Certainly not that fast. If you ever need my testimony to some regulatory agency or whatever, you may be sure my tale will be told with appreciation for the first rate professionalism I have experienced (and not just once) at KwikMed. Thank you for your fine health care service.”

“Thanks for your email reply regarding my message –  much appreciated, very prompt and very professional – it’s a pleasure doing business with you.”


“I just want to thank you for helping me with my problem you people are the best!!!!”

“Thank you for taking care of my order promptly. I appreciate the great service you provide. Once again thank you.”
