NYC Files Appeal for Blocked Soda Ban

There’s more drama with the NYC soda ban. Last week, the city filed an appeal after a judge halted the ban claiming that the city’s health board doesn’t have the authority to regulate what people drink, reported USA Today. The city argues that it’s the health board’s job to set public health standards and the ban is within that scope.
