Many manufactured food and drink products contain high levels of sugar, which causes many health problems. Sugary products should be made more expensive to encourage people to consume less sugar. Do you agree or disagree?

Many people believe that food and beverages that are high in sugar should be sold at high prices to discourage people from consuming these unhealthy
products
. I totally disagree because I think that it is unfair to consumers charge more for these
products
and
also
because there are other more effective ways to discourage
consumption
of these
types
of
goods
. The main reason why I believe these
products
should not be made more expensive is that it is unfair to shoppers. These
types
of
goods
, when consumed in moderation, are not a health risk and
therefore
it does not seem reasonable that everybody who consumes these
goods
should have to pay more.
Furthermore
, for people on a tight budget, a sweet snack is an affordable luxury.
However
, if prices are hiked
this
might put people’s favourite snack out of reach.
In addition
, there are more effective ways to decrease the
consumption
of sugary
goods
. The best way is for the government to engage in public service advertising to educate the public about the need to eat these
types
of
products
in moderation.
This
type of approach has been useful with other vices
such
as alcohol and cigarettes and so it seems reasonable that it will
also
work for sugary
products
. Another effective way to decrease

this
will be effective because it will create less of a psychological desire to consume these

This
is because it is not fair to consumers and there are better ways to reduce
consumption
of these sugary

Support ideas with relevant, specific examples

Examples make your writing easier to understand by illustrating points more effectively.

Examples, if used properly, not only help you get higher marks for ‘Task Response’ but also for ‘Coherence’.

When giving examples it is best to put them after your main idea or topic sentence. They can be used in the middle of supporting sentences or they can be used to start a new sentence. There is no rule for where exactly to give examples in essays, logically they would come after your main idea/topic sentence or just after a supporting sentence.

Linking words for giving examples:

  • for example
  • for instance
  • to illustrate this
  • to give a clear example
  • such as
  • namely
  • to illustrate
  • take, for example
