New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg says he’s disappointed with a new report that shows obesity rates in the city have risen approximately 25-percent during his term in office. He says he thinks the ban on super-sized sodas could have helped.
Statistics from the city’s Health Department show that in 2002 one-in-five New Yorkers was considered obese. Today, that number is one-in-four.
