Enjoy a cold Coke on a hot day while you can. Like so much else that Americans used to take for granted, soda will soon be illegal. It isn’t just a personal campaign by the micromanaging tyrant Michael Bloomberg. The mainstream media is laying the groundwork for a nationwide ban — or the sort of prohibitive punitive taxation we see on cigarettes. As always, The Experts testify that our freedom must be abridged because it is bad for us:
Sugar-sweetened beverages are linked to more than 180,000 obesity-related deaths worldwide each year, according to new research presented this week at an American Heart Association conference.
“This means about one in every 100 deaths from obesity-related diseases is caused by drinking sugary beverages,” says study author Gitanjali Singh, a postdoctoral research fellow at the Harvard School of Public Health.
The USA ranks third in deaths caused by these sinister sugary drinks, whose manufacturers are said to earn profits. A shocking 100% of those killed had once been innocent children.
Anyone familiar with how this game works understands that if the liberal agenda calls for it, the axis formed by the establishment media and government grant–dependent Experts will convince gullible fools that the color orange kills millions per year, that the letter q is unfair to blacks, that Oceania has always been at war with Eastasia — or even that “soda boosts violence among teens.”
