Busted

A graphic prepared by Mike Bloomberg in support of his proposed ban on large sodas lies about the sugar and calorie content of various sizes. The graphic doesn’t specify what the beverage is, but nevertheless the sugar/calories per unit volume ought to be constant among various sizes. Instead, Bloomberg’s numbers imply 12.2 calories per ounce in a large size, and 11.3 in a small size.

It’s not just rounding either, because 748 most naturally rounds to 750, not 780.
