@LloydBD13 @spraydriftgirl I'd check your supervisor - there are 19 countries & several large American states with a sugar tax - are they all wrong? - a sugar tax is not the panacea to the obesity epidemic but should be part of a raft of proposals to attack this global multi-million dollar health problem.
@spraydriftgirl The 2008 cost of obesity to Australia was estimated at $58 billion - imagine the figure in 2018 - The Heart Foundation, Cancer Council, Kidney Health, Diabetes Foundation & the Stroke Foundation all support a sugar tax - go tell them they're joking.
Australia - you are too fat - and getting fatter!!! ....Stats show 63.4% are overweight - i.e. with a BMI greater than 25 - 1995 the figure was 30% and 2005 it was 53.6% - we need a genuine debate about a sugar tax!!
China- importing 100 million tonnes of soybeans 2017/18 - a lot of soy sauce - oops - it's a lot of pigs to feed - 720 million! - now that's a lot of sweet & sour pork!
