Bloomberg Demands New Yorkers Shake Another Habit

Once again, Michael Bloomberg has turned his personal food issues into a citywide problem. The man who is served a salt shaker with popcorn because he likes it so salty and who sprinkles so much salt on his morning bagel that it’s like a pretzel — that same individual has declared a war on salt and requested that sodium be reduced by 25% in packaged and restaurant foods. Bloomberg’s food police even took that one absurd step further and banned food donations to homeless shelters because the city couldn’t access their salt, fiber and fat content.
