From a personal standpoint, we've managed to eliminate all sodas and sugary fruit drinks from our diet (we do, however, cave sometimes when we go to local eateries that offer Dublin Dr Pepper or other cane sugar-based soft drinks). But we know folks who can't live without their diet drink in the morning, or absolutely must drink a soda with that specific meal (Big Red and barbeque, who's with me?).
Here's a bit found over at the Mother News Network regarding soda taxes.
So what do you think about these proposed taxes on something that, from a green standpoint, is not healthful for the planet (and from a health standpoint, is not good for a human)? Are there going to be revolts if a soda tax is passed? We've been hearing a lot of folks proclaiming that "sodas are the new cigarettes." Is there truth to that?
