Fast food is becoming popular in today’s era. However, people eat too much junk food, this brings disadvantages for people health. I strong believe the number of health risk; it is related to high fast food consumption. I totally agree that government should be increase a heavy tax for junk food.
I strong believe that imposing a hefty tax for this kind of food and this can reduce the number of health problems of human. Firstly, fast food chain has the most calories, this leads to obese or heart problem. For example, in 2004, it is estimated that nine million between the ages of 6-18 are obese. This includes 127 million overweight adults, approximately 60 million obese adults.
In addition, increase taxes on fast food, it will help decrease the number of junk food consumption. The cost tax can be used as a tool to raise awareness of the harmful effects of junk food. Moreover, in some countries are not imposing a higher tax for fast food restaurant, however, they imposing a higher tax for fat or sugar because the condition of being grossly fat and the problem of obesity among children in Mexico increasing because they ate too much fast food and drink too much soda. For example, Officials in India’s southern state of Kerala have placed a tax on fast food, at 14.5 percent at restaurants such as McDonald’s, Pizza Hut and Burger Ki.
In conclusion, fast food help people save their time when they are a bit hectic. However, I would agree that governments should be imposing a hefty tax for fast food because people have a high consumption of junk and unhealthy food, it brings some diseases like obesity and cardiovascular disease.
