Improving Public Health With A Fat Tax? [We’re A Lazy Bunch]

Do you think the government should tax people to improve public health?

An Australian doctor, John Ticket, has come up with the idea of the “fat-tax”. Would it work? I doubt it. Obese people need education in order to beat the eating habit. A lot of people have underlying issues that affect their eating so how exactly would a tax solve an eating disorder?

Just feels like overweight people would get punished and it may not even be their fault. While it’s true that most pollute and destroy their body at their own will and yes we do have the choice to exercise and not overeat.
