  • Soda should be removed from vending machines and grocery stores, if you don't want soda in vending machines and grocery stores. If you want soda in vending machines and grocery stores I would have to vote "No" to the question. I voted yes, because the people that are selling soda, very likely want someone to buy it, i.e., remove it from the store. That way they can put more in.

  • To Heterodox: what. If anything, soda would be a health issue. Of course they want to put more in. That's how you make money. And if people say soda is bad for health, than they shouldn't buy it. They don't have to punish others just because they can't handle 160 Calories.

  • Soda is not no worse than anything else that people drink and soda are not the only thing the effects people health so if people want to buy and drink soda that their right

  • No because then we'll ban everything. From alcoholic beverages to red meat. Don't ban soda. Your body your choice.

@ JimShady, You talk about punishing others, yet you want the soda companies to go out of business from not selling any of their soda.

To Heterodix: No. I never said I want them to go out of business. I'm actually fighting FOR them, because I don't want soda taken away. And if soda isn't taken away, they will not go out of business. You, on the other hand, want to take away others' ability to buy soda from stores. In addition, you are punishing the companies by not letting them sell their product in stores. I don't wanna punish anyone.

Considering the fact sugar is the enemy to the growing epidemic of obesity in the United States and the cause of diabetes in CHILDREN younger and younger which leads to stroke and heart disease...It may behoove a restriction of sales of sugary drinks to kids in school, cafeterias, and the like. More education on better nutritional choices should be made available to students and parents. Also, instead of lowering Food Stamps to the poor, maybe letting them have eenough to buy healthy food instead of cheap snack foods would remedy obesity as well.

Cigarettes are still for sell and people know they cause cancer, yet people buy them everyday.So to act as if it is as easy as "just don't buy it' is a little naive, wouldn't you agree? Especially when you are inundated with adverts every 2 seconds in the US.

To maslow: Sugar does cause health problems, but it's important to know that this is in LARGE amounts. Sugar is not the enemy, overeating is. I'll drink one soda and be fine. Restrictions on buying large amounts of soda is reasonable... But keep in mind we are voting on taking it away completely. I agree on you with education on the matter, but honestly I feel that will not impact obesity much. Your food stamps proposal is a good idea.

To maslow: Nice analogy, but cigarettes pose much more health issuses than sugar. A five-year old can buy candy but not fags, and for good reason. Ultimately it's up to the person on if they should purchase or not, they should have the option when it comes to soda, which is not unhealthy as people say claim it is. Cigarettes are deadly though, they should be limited.

@JimShady, You voted "no". You don't want people to buy soda. What you fail to grasp is that I am using the questioners lack of detail. If I buy a soda from a store, I am removing it from that store. So, Yes I want soda's to be removed, because I want them sold and then restocked.

To Heterodox: Alright, I understand your point. I think he it's safe to infer that the questioner was talking about simply not selling them there. So, if anything, we are both correct, as we see the question differently.
