Everybody knows that junk food and fatty snacks are not healthy. They are harmful to human body. I think that government should place tax on the junk food anf fatty snacks because they have negative effects to our health.
Firstly, they are hazardous for our health. Eating unhealthy foods increases the obesity, early death, depression. So, taxes would discourage people from consuming unhealthy food. It may not stop people eating fatty foods completely. But reducing consumation of not healthy food would have a benefit in improving health and personal well being.
Secondly, healthy food should be made more affordable while increasing unhealthy foods prices. By them more expensive, healthy food will be cheaper in comparison, which would result in more people choosing more healthy food options.
However, increasing the price of some foods does not attack the root of the problem, and other approaches are needed. Governments can restrict the sale of fast foods and limit advertising. Health education is a second strategy. People need to be aware of the dangers of an unhealthy diet. Parents also play an important role: they need to give their children nutritious food.
In conclusion, the government should place a tax on the junk food and fatty snack to have a healthier society.
