Michael Bloomberg might be out of office, but Nanny State policies were't just the former mayor's. You bring this on yourselves, New Yorkers, with your unhealthy choices.
As expected, the New York City Board of Health voted unanimously Wednesday to require many restaurant chains in the city to include warning labels on menu items that contain a shitload of sodium, becoming the first city in the nation to do so. As soon as December, restaurants must add a salt shaker symbol to menu items -- everything from sandwiches to greasy fast food items -- that pack more than 2,300 milligrams of sodium, or the recommended daily limit, according to a report by The New York Times.
For additional perspective, 2,300 milligrams of sodium is about a teaspoon of salt -- in one item.
