Sugary drinks tax 'effective public health measure'

RATE THIS! +48
Posted in Medicine on 2nd Nov, 2013 02:44 AM by AlexMuller

 A 20% tax on sugary drinks would reduce the number of obese adults in the UK by 180,000, say researchers writing in the British Medical Journal.

 
The impact would be greatest in the under-30s, the Oxford and Reading university study suggests.
 
But some groups say a tax is misguided and simplistic, and would not have an impact on older age groups who might benefit most from losing weight.
 
Earlier this year doctors called for a soft drinks tax to reduce sugar intake.
 
Sugar-sweetened drinks, when taken regularly, have been shown to increase the risk of obesity, diabetes and tooth decay.
 
A typical sugary drink can contain six to 15 teaspoons of sugar. One teaspoon of sugar is equivalent to 4g of sugar or 16 calories.
 
A 20% tax would add about 12p to the price of a 330ml can of fizzy drink bought in a supermarket or about 40p to the cost of two-litre bottle.
 
The researchers in this study estimated that such a tax could cut drinks purchases by 15% and lead to a reduced energy intake of 28 calories per person per week.
 
Overall, they estimated that such a tax would reduce the number of obese UK adults by 1.3% and the number of overweight adults by 0.9%.

If we can tax cigarets, why not sugary drinks?

Even worse, they affect younger people so the treatment could be over many more years and very costly Reply

Perhaps, we need a legal limit how much sugar can be in a drink? Reply

I did not know that one sugary drink can have 6-15 spoons of sugar or up to 60g that is 240 calories. People need to know this; more alerts about this would help Reply

"It's multigenerational, Well-poured pints of Guinness,I lived in Irvine Calif. for 18 years I know the ways in and out of the city I know which streets are residential and which are office parks I know where the old air force base is where the best tacos are hidden and where the university is I know the quickest ways to Newport Beach and Santa Ana and the times when the streets are thickest with cars I know where the dry hills are and where the big lake sitsAll of which is to say that if you were planning a bombing raid on Irvine I’d be a reasonably good guy to talk to But in the extremely unlikely scenario in which I would help with a bombing raid on Irvine (everyone has already been evacuated and Irvine is now the epicenter of a fast-spreading zombie infestation maybe) I wouldn’t be of much use if you rolled out an unmarked map of the world and asked my to put a pin in my hometownI could get close of course But I might end up directing the planes to Long Beach or EscondidoI bring this up because we’re in another round of “Americans can’t even find [X] on a map” In this case “X” is Syria And the fact that many Americans couldn’t pass a Middle East geography quiz is supposed to prove…something“Half of Americans can??t even find Syria on a map” Blake Hounshell in Politico“Now members of Congress will have to consult maps and figure out where Syria is” New York Times columnist Nick KristofThe Web site UsVsTh3m even created a game out of it “Where’s Damascus” lets users drop a pin on a unmarked map to see if they know the location of Syria’s capitol Then they can compare their results with other players The game went viral and UsVsTh3m found itself sitting on top of 65 guesses from inside the Pentagon“You??d expect folks in the US Department of Defense to know the location of the place they??re probably about to bomb” write the authors But”only 57 percent of the answers we got from inside the DoD were right”Luckily the maps at the Department of Defense are labeledThere are good arguments against attacking Syria (Indeed as of yet I haven’t heard many good arguments for attacking Syria) But none of them have anything to do with whether a random American could find the place on a map Where Syria sits on a globe has basically nothing to do with the wisdom of a punitive strike meant to uphold international norms against the use of chemical weaponsFrom 2009 to 2011 Anne-Marie Slaughter served as director of policy planning for the State Department “I could point out Syria on an unlabeled map but am only 30 percent confident of my ability to locate Damascus” she admitsBut so what “In every crisis whether from natural disaster or human agency places we had either never heard of or knew only vaguely about suddenly focus our attention” she continues “How many people could have told you where Pearl Harbor was when it was attacked Or Poland when it was invaded by the Nazis”Foreign policy maven Steve Clemons is pretty sure he could find Syria on a map “But don’t test me on Sub-Saharan Africa” he says He argues that insofar as we’re going to test people’s geography skills we’re getting the question wrong “Knowing what players surround Syria and are in it’s neighborhood matters Syria’s neighborhood includes Israel Jordan Lebanon Iraq and Turkey so knowing this geographic aspect of the picture is vital to understanding much of the dynamic inside Syria”But as that suggests even being able to rattle off every country in the Middle East wouldn’t help you much After all knowing Iran is near Syria doesn’t tell you whether Iran is supporting Assad (yep) or the rebels (nope) Knowing Turkey is right around the corner doesn’t tell you whether Turkey supports Assad (nope) or the rebels (tacitly)All of which is to say that the map doesn’t tell you much about Syria In this era of labeled maps Google Earth and well Google the question isn’t whether you can find Syria on a map It’s whether you can find useful information about Syria in your browser I’d start with Dylan Matthews’ “” or Max Fisher’s “” I’d stay away from maps at least until you’ve learned enough to make them mean somethingRick Perry (R) is going to St.” KTRS general manager Mark Dorsey .
