Nowadays, obesity is a big problem in many developed countries. If there were not too much fat people, it wouldn’t be a problem for government butonly a personal problem for every people who are too fat.
But in time, it becomes a problem everywhere people hasn’t enough money to eat what theywant, or hasn’t enough time to prepare healthy meal. Obviously, in Africa for example, obesity doesn’t exist because people are too poor.
Someexperts have proposed a fat tax on junk food based their fat content. But was does it really mean? Is it really fair? By one hand, it’s a sort ofdiscrimination to fat people. Indeed, obesity is a personal problem, it causes enough health problems, to these people and I think government doesn’tneed to add some taxes.
It’s not fair because obesity could be a family problem; furthermore, a lot of thin people are going to eat junk food andthey don’t put on weight. So, they will need to pay for fat people even if they are not! It’s not fair again.
On the other hand, obesity is areal society problem. Someone who is too fat would hardly find a job because nowadays, physical appearance is particularly important. Everyday you cansee in the magazines how it’s fashionable to be very thin.
I hope the government find another proposition much fair for everybody. First,it should exist prevention to sensibiliser thin people or children to eat healthy before to tax junk food, which isn't in my opinion, a fair idea.
