INTRODUCING THE ‘FAT TAX’

If you want to save your Government some money, put down the fizzy drink and donut. Minister for health Dr James Reilly is exploring the introduction of a “fat tax” on sugary, fat or high salt foods to defray the cost of illnesses brought on by poor diet such as obesity and type 2 diabetes, says the Sunday Business Post. Ireland has one of the highest obesity rates in the world with 38%of the population overweight and 23% obese. We also have 150,000 people with type 2 diabetes and 146,000 estimates as having pre-diabetes. A fat tax has already been introduced in Hungary, Denmark, Finland and France.
