Jamie Oliver “Sugar Tax!!!”

The data that sugar and carbohydrates are detrimental to our health has been widely available for many years and yet it seems that people have yet to change their eating habits. I am not sure that I agree with taxing food, but in England where they have NHS and 68% disease is due to improper diet, trying to change eating habits is a high priority. One way to have people eat less sugar is to make it more expensive, and the manner in which the government can do thisJamie Oliver is through a tax.

 

“Mr Oliver told the Daily Mail: “Sugar’s definitely the next evil. It’s the next tobacco, without doubt, and that industry should be scared. And it should be taxed, just like tobacco and anything else that can, frankly, destroy lives.”

So, maybe sugar will be the new tobacco. We can only hope…
