ADDS THAT 7-ELEVEN IS NOT SUBJECT TO CITY HEALTH RULES - FILE - In this May 31, 2012 file photo, a man leaves a 7-Eleven store with a Double Gulp drink, in New York. The city defended its groundbreaking size limit on sugary drinks Wednesday, Jan. 23, 2013, as an imperfect but meaningful rein on obesity, while critics said it would hurt small and minority-owned businesses while doing little to help health. The regulation doesn't cover alcoholic drinks or sales at supermarkets and many convenience stores — among them 7-Eleven, home of the Big Gulp — because they aren't subject to city health rules.
