Man drinks glass of fat in NYC anti-soda video

Monday, December 14, 2009

The New York City health department has released a nauseating video in an effort to prevent people from drinking sugary beverages.

The video was posted Monday on YouTube.

A man opens a soda can and pours the liquid into a glass. It's actually a mess of goop made to look like fat.

When he swills the disgusting-looking substance, he ends up with globs on his face.

Health Commissioner Thomas Farley says sugary drinks are a large part of the obesity epidemic.

A 2007 health department survey found that more than 2 million New Yorkers drink at least one sugar-sweetened beverage each day.
