    stupid nhs drugs made me obese... would i be exempt from any fat-taxes? it was costing the nhs over £50 a month in drug costs to get me that fat in the first place...
    i have since stopped taking the drugs and lost all that extra weight in 9 months making me a very healthy 9 stone... and having been both fat and thin i say fat is BAD. uncomfortable, unhealthy, unattractive. i used to just feel gross and get worn out going up stairs and things.
    i think stop junk food adverts partic for kids and invest in education for now, then think about the charging obese for treatment in the future when there is no excuse that it was advertising etc. would be too problematic to implement a charging system now.

    Nah don't tax them. Just educate parents on what to feed their kids, eating habits are formed when you're young. And, anyway, if you have enough willpower you should still be able to change your eating patterns to the better.

    Tax unhealthy foods? No way! What will I eat then? I'm not fat but I guzzle a lot of junk food and I'd be poorer if it was taxed.

    well i guess there are some circumstances that are ok in my books like when the guy who wrote about how he took drugs and that made him obese but if you are eating so much and even know that it is harming you wouldnt you stop??? i guess its the same as smoking, you know its bad for you but the smokers still do it
