Global governments ‘must get tough on obesity’

Tougher action – including taxing junk food – is needed by all governments if the obesity crisis is going to be tackled, experts say.

The international group of researchers, who have published a series of articles in The Lancet, said no country had yet got to grips with the problem.

They said changes in society meant it was getting harder for people to live healthy lives.

And they warned without state action, health systems could become swamped.

Opinion:

I would go so far as to say that junk food needs to be taxed off the market and taxes removed from foods considered healthy.

There needs to be further investigation into the ‘white liquid’ they sell as milk and the chemical cocktail fruit juices amongst many other evils of the food industry.
