Yesterday, the World Health Organization yesterday urged nations to raise the prices of sugary drinks, including even 100 percent fruit juices.
Why? They are hoping to fight obesity, diabetes and tooth decay.
Citing tax campaigns used to reduce tobacco use, WHO said that higher taxes on sugary drinks could lead people to consume less sugar. Do you think it’s a good idea?
According to WHO, global obesity more than doubled between 1980 and 2014, when nearly 40 percent of people around the world were overweight.
