Denmark’s fat tax is a big fat mistake

What a joke that Denmark levies a tax on saturated fats. Some scientists even agree with me and say that sugars and refined carbohydrats are more responsible for our health than saturated fats. There is nothing wrong with butter, lard and natural fats in general. It is in the how much. It is a great mistake in my view to tax natural fats and punish people to eat them at all.

What is unhealthy in my personal view are all those processed foods that we eat to snack in abundanceĀ rather than the pure natural ingredient. It is a matter of much one eats and not what one eats. It’s a little bit like taxing people for breathing. It could well be possible that Denmark would be the first country to tax people for doing that too.
