You’ve been telling us what you think about doctors calling for an increase in the price of fizzy drinks to tackle rising obesity.
Lucy Furr No I don’t think it’s a good idea. Perhaps they should make the good stuff cheaper so we can afford to be healthier. Junk is cheaper and they know that.
Dean Brunt A better option would be to educate people on healthy lifestyles and make them understand that treats are ok every once in a while but should be consumed as part of a healthy balanced diet that contains everything from your 5 a day, 3 a day etc.
Lorraine Rothwell People should be allowed to eat and drink and do as they please. BUT they should not be allowed NHS resources in trying to put right what they did wrong, i.e. gastric band ops etc. Everyone has to take responsibility for their own actions....
