Obesity in Australia
In 2017, more than 60% of adults in Australia were obese.
Why is this a problem ?
Obesity can lead to many health diseases like types of cancers, type 2 diabetes, Osteoarthritis and types of heart diseases.
What causes obesity?
The are many complex factors influencing the obesity problem in Australia. However, the fast food chains are definite contributors. They sell their unhealthy foods for ridiculously cheap prices, whereas fruit and vegetables are very expensive.
How can we address the issue?
By applying a 10% sugar tax to high sugar content foods we are able to raise the price in these unhealthy foods and to fund a reduction in the price of fruit and vegetables. This has worked in other countries like United Kingdom, Mexico and many others.
By signing this petition you are agreeing to add a sugar tax to this unhealthy or high sugar content foods, to reduce the risk in Australian Obesity
