We all Need a New York State of Mind

Trans fats, smoking, calorie posts, soft drinks, now salts!

New York was the first state to regulate trans fats in restaurants and fast food chains. It also launched the first anti-smoking campaign and required restaurants and fast food chains to post calorie counts on their menus. Recently, they have launched a campaign discouraging soft drink consumption called Don’t Drink Your Self FAT. Today, they’ve begun the battle against salt! If this battle is won, restaurants and fast food chains may be required to lower the amount of salt in their meals by twenty-five percent. More battles are necessary to win the war; so far, it looks like New York just might lead the rest of the nation to victory!

See you in The Big Apple.
