    UK Doctors: "Tax fizzy drinks and bad junk food ads"

    Shop Now
    To put this in context, we have a Nationally Funded Health Service, and finally the modern diet is strangling it.

    BBC News - Tax fizzy drinks and ban junk food ads, say doctors

    We've had a pharma-culture that ignored the importance of diet, like all western nations, but it's finally caught up with us!

    because taxing those foods has worked so well for the rest of the world?

    indeed
    beautiful
    yeah you are

    I mean there's so many ants in my eyes! And there are so many TVs, microwaves, radios... I think, I can't, I'm not 100% sure what we have here in stock.. I don't know because I can't see anything! Our prices, I hope, aren't too low!

    Maybe even more, if I put those baggyazz pants I used to wear..... the pockets could hold a freakton... maybe a liter bottle each.... and one of those 2-can hard hats with the sippy straw.... aw hell, just get a wagon and a CO2 bottle with a keg....

    Tax it 100%! Better yet, ban all of it! But just remember: street drugs are illegal too. When's the last time you saw meth on a store shelf? If people want something badly enough, people will have it.

    Ps. Taxation is theft.

    In theory a good idea if the tax actually funded the NHS, but it would just go in to the pot and get spent on ponies for camerons friends
