Slimmers Support Junk Food Tax To Reduce Health Food Cost

Not this one.

The data are clear, you save or give fatsos money and they spend it on more Calories.
A junk food tax would be supported by most individuals if the money was used to lower the cost of healthy foods, such as fruit and vegetables, according to a poll of approximately 1,000 slimmers.

The Lancet predicted that approximately half of all individuals will have a BMI of 30 or more (obese) by the year 2030. The article also stated that aggressive advertising and lobbying by the food industry were to blame for the increase in obesity. They suggested a tax on junk food to change the trend. Following this Slimming World ran a poll on their Facebook fan page.

48% backed the junk food tax out of approximately 1,000 individuals who participated in the poll. However, in a related poll, the support rose to 90% when the participants were asked how they would vote if the money was used to reduce the cost of healthy food.
A s**t for brains approach.

Fight it at all costs.
