I think they should do it here in America and here are a few pros why

Obesity is an epidemic that warrants a fat tax

A fat tax could save lives.

A fat tax would increase the demand and price of healthy foods.

Saturated fat is not a problem food. HFCS, aspartame, gluten, GMO, low mineral content, canola etc; are the real problems. Your kool aid is probably the biggest problem, wake up.

Might I add ingested sodium fluoride, Bisphenol A; among others making people stupid in general and added hormonal imbalance is in general destroying our health. Oh yeah vaccines, I could go on but....

Saturated fat such as coconut cooking oil is actually heart healthy.

Re: FAT TAX ON FOOD IN DENMARK FIRST IN THE WORLD
I did not agree with the smoking ban and I will not agree to a ban on fatties being able to get thier saturated fat fix. This is just another avenue for control.

From a dollars and cents view point, obese people do have a lot of health problems which relates solely to being obese and strains the system. A system which may I remind you that they have paid into so they are able to use it.

We need to eat healthy and fresh food instead of the processed, homoginized, shelf stable preservative loaded foods we would have less of an obesity issue. Read the ingredients list on alot of products to understand.

Bottom line is Americans are lazy from comfort and convience. We need to bring excercise back into our lives and just eat healthy foods and I think we would see alot of pounds falling off of people without much effort.

The poison food is as cheap as possible so that people eat it. If you put it out like rat poison there are a certain percentage of people willing to give it a try. That's how we determine who gets eliminated from the gene pool. If you don't have enough sense to eat things that keep you healthy then Darwin steps in and eliminates you. There seems to be a certain justice in that.

What the fuck are you blabbing about saturated fat?

There is NO PROOF that saturated fat causes heart disease!

It has much more to do with the amount of carbohydrates that contribute to chronic high blood sugar level which directly raises small dense LDL which causes plaque build up in the arteries!

Saturated fat is not what is causing obesity.

For 40 years people have been reducing their sat fat and getting FATTER!

It's in all the Government stats .... this is a front for the pharmaceuticals to encourage more people to eat more of the stuff that's making them sick and drive the vegetarian society agenda.

It's been a disaster so far and it will get worse!

Re: FAT TAX ON FOOD IN DENMARK FIRST IN THE WORLD
Not sure if I agree with this particular tax but I am a proponent of taxing unhealthy substances.

The following two reasons are most important to me:
1: When demand of healthy products go up, prices will eventually come down. One of the problems is that unhealthy products are cheaper than healthy products.
2: When people are healthy, they are less expensive from an insurance point of view which in turn means healthcare will become cheaper for everybody.

In the Netherlands there is a discussion going on to let people who are overweight and smoke pay an extra premium on their health insurance as those people are most likely the ones who will need the most care later in life and ramp up the bill, which we all pay.

Is this social engineering? Yes it it.

But unfortunately, people need incentives, and the only incentive which seem to work on human beings is money in the pocket.

... hubby was suffering from Crohns ... but the kind that affected carbohydrates! ...
.
... our daughter studied how digestion worked at the CHEMICAL level and what the various needs of the body were ...
.
... she found that FAT affected the emotions of people ...
.
... and that I can confirm because about 15 years ago the doc my hubby went to at the time told him his cholesterol was above what the doc wanted ...
.
... so ... for three months hubby had a diet of no more than 30 grams fat ...
.
... he went from a pleasant man to be around to angry and short tempered ...
.
... when he went to the doc the doc said there was good news and ... bad news ...
.
... the "bad" cholesterol went down ... but ... so did the "good"! ...
.
... and a month after hubby went back to normal eating a study showed how the lack of fat in a diet influenced suicidal thoughts ...

I can't get my sister to understand that all this fat free and sugar free stuff isn't good for you.
She and her husband went to this low fat, fat free diet crap after she found out she has high cholesterol! It's hereditary!
She tried for years to do anything and everything naturally to lower her cholesterol, but in the end, the doctor won that argument. She's on Crestor now.
Me, I have pre-hypertension. It runs in the family along with diabetes, heart problems, and atherosclerosis,etc.. we got the shit end of the spectrum.

You are correct.

What has to bother most rational people is the fat tax foisted on butter and milk products is discouraged while ingesting chemical laden margarine is encouraged. The fact of the matter is that all countries are financially unfit and they are taxing food previously untouched by taxation using the guise of we know what is best for you.

 Quoting: INPTX


The concept of freedom means that you body is your own and taxing real foods such as butter and margarine, cheese and meats are counter productive and deter from a healthy diet.

People fall into the trap of relying upon fast foods and live sedentary lifestyles instead of home cooked meals with vegetables with a dollop of butter and milk to wash it down.

You might be happy allowing the government to lead you about by the nose however many are not. Will you blindly accept Monsanto’s genetically modified foods into your diet because the government states that it is good for you. Consider the fact that our leftist government is allowing this company to regulate itself while farmers growing natural produce is becoming so regulated to the point they are going out of business.

You need to do some research before allowing yourself to become a government kept pet and will eat whatever they toss before you.

This is about money the government needs money and will tax you to death and give you nothing.
