Sugar Tax

This story from the BBC is an interesting addition to the conversation about whether we should tax unhealthy foods to force people to eat more healthily.  Researchers from the US have proposed a sugar tax to combat that country’s soaring consumption of sugar and sweeteners.  Others dissent.

The story also mentions that “Denmark and Hungary have a tax on saturated fat, while France has approved a tax on soft drinks” which is news to me.  Interesting.
