Actually, the report was seven pages in length, so Nanny Bloomberg is requesting a ban on Canadian studies over four pages long.  You’ll just have to purchase two in order to read the whole thing.

Via Yahoo! Philippines:

As New Yorkers continue to debate a controversial proposal to ban supersized sodas, a new study out of Canada says the link between the consumption of sweetened beverages and childhood obesity is weak at best.

It’s the latest study to weigh in on the controversy which has divided the city, with supporters lauding Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s initiative to combat rising obesity and others calling the strategy shortsighted.

The Canadian study, to be published in the October issue of Applied Physiology, Nutrition, and Metabolism, determined that more than the consumption of sugary drinks, the main predictors of childhood obesity among Canadian children were household income, ethnicity and household food security.

Ethnicity?  Were the researchers aware that their study was inherently racist?

I wonder if somebody could present this study to Bloomberg and ‘force him to understand‘.
