In a discussion with host Larry Kudlow about the new ban on the sale of large sugary drinks in New York City that was part of the 9/13/12 edition of CNBC's "The Kudlow Report," National Center Risk Analysis Division director Jeff Stier says this is not just about New York City, soda and perceived safety of the Big Apple. Jeff warns "the nanny state has been co-opted by big government activists. It's no longer about public health anymore. The public health community doesn't exist. This is actually bad for public health."

While Mayor Michael Bloomberg claims his campaigns against the freedom to choose are — as he said regarding the soda bad — to "save lives," Jeff contends this one ban is part of a larger campaign backed by activists in the federal government who have no scientific justification to back up their regulatory restrictions.

This small excerpt of CNBC's "The Kudlow Report" of September 13, 2012, featuring National Center for Public Policy Research Risk Analysis Division Director Jeff Stier, has been posted under fair use guidelines for the purpose of non-profit, educational public debate by the National Center for Public Policy Research, a 501(c)(3) educational foundation under the Internal Revenue Code.
