Interesting Facts You Should Know
Thursday, March 28, 2013
In looking up reserch for my essay i came across an article that talked about Canadian healthcare. In it the authors were talking about a sin tax that is placed on alcohol and tobacco; but it can even include taxes on sugary beverages and food that is not very nutritional. These kind of taxes can be used to support healthcare. In Denmark they recently introduced a tax on chocolate, candy, and ice cream and will soon be introducing a tax on sugary soft drinks. Plus a tax on saturated fat is also planned. Can you imagine the hulabaloo if they did that here? This artice is from the Canadian Medical Association Journal dated March 22, 2011. They probably already are doing just that. If that happened here some of us could not afford to even buy chocolate very much or ice cream. I have several to go through yet and it will be a long winded process today. Plus i also lost 4 pounds this week.
