Bottled water bans are off the mark

RE “At Vt. school, no admission for bottled water” (Page A1, Feb. 15): So, now the University of Vermont has banned the sale of bottled water on the campus. Same as my town. This is a mistake. What should have been banned instead are bottled sugary sodas and other less healthy drinks.

To combat obesity, let’s target the offending agents, and promote the consumption of non-caloric, healthy water.
