In some countries an increasing number of people are suffering from health problems as a result of eating too much fast food. It is therefore necessary for governments to impose a higher tax on this kind of food. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this opinion ?

Fast
food
joints had a massive expansion in recent years and
hence
, in a few nations, a huge amount of humans has encountered physical fitness issues by consuming more
junk
food
. Should higher authorities levy more taxes on
such
types of eating items? I completely disagree that governments should tax
this
kind of
food
.
This
essay will discuss all significant components in detail.
To begin
with, increasing tariffs will not affect individuals who belong to the upper class and can afford
such
edible items.
Although
, a difference might be seen in lower and middle class people who consume
junk
food
. That means increasing the tax on fast
food
will have only a marginal effect on its consumption.
For example
, the average income category of people might not take their families to fast
food
restaurants.
On the other hand
, the government should think of creating awareness about the ill-effects of
junk
food
. If people are educated about the harmful effects of consuming
this
variety of
food
frequently, there is a bright possibility of them adopting a healthier lifestyle.
For instance
, many individuals follow what is shown in advertisements and broadcasting videos of fitness problems caused by eating fast
food
will surely direct them towards a balanced diet. To conclude, government increasing taxes on
junk
food
will not give the desired results and that will be specific to selected groups of individuals. While, raising awareness of health concerns, will keep a lasting impression on an individual’s mind.
