NPR’s On Point with Tom Ashbrook
A judge strikes down New York’s ban on big sugary drinks. What do we do about American obesity?

Starting today, big sugary drinks in New York City were supposed to be history. Banned in restaurants across the Big Apple. New York mayor Michael Bloomberg’s way of saying, “lighten up, New York.” Lose some weight. Don’t be obese.
But yesterday, on the eve of the ban, a top New York state judge said no. No ban. Not this one anyway. He called Bloomberg’s scheduled ban “arbitrary and capricious” and over-reaching. Ok. So what do we do about this country’s exploding obesity problem?
This hour, On Point: no to a ban, yes to what, on American obesity?
