Possible Sugar Tax

Posted by on Feb 13, 2012 in Blogs | 59 comments

The over consumption of sugar has become a worldwide epidemic over the past fifty years. Experts in the United States are proposing a tax to moderate unhealthy sugar intake. The tax would apply to foods that have added sugar or sweeteners, such as soft drinks. Other countries have already implemented such taxes on unwholesome foods.

This excess sugar consumption is associated with the rise in obesity, high blood pressure, and diabetes. In addition, researchers believe that a ban preventing young children from purchasing unhealthy foods may be a key to developing healthy eating habits early on. For adults, the tax would discourage the purchase of sugary foods and drinks, which in turn would promote a healthier lifestyle.

Major changes like these take time and are certain to be faced with adversity. It’s hard to say if and when this tax would be imposed. How do you, our readers, feel about the proposed sugar tax?
