Tax Junk Food

Comment 16th August 2010

Heavilly Tax all processed foods with a high levels of sugar/fat and salt

Why does this matter?

Everyone knows that excessive levels of sugar/fat and salt are bad for you. Therefore crisps/fizzy drinks, sweets, fish and chips, pizza's etc should all be heavilly taxed. These foods cause obesity/ diabetes and many other health problems. The NHS spends millions if not billions because people have poor diets. By taxing these foods which cause health problems you could raise more tax to treat people in hostpital. Raise awareness and promote health fresh food and even subsidise it. Alcohol is taxed. So are cigarettes. Why not junk food. Look at the problems – ask the doctors Junk food is doing a lot of damage. Tax it
