100NO 236: The Longevity Killer – How To Fix Obesity (& It’s Not A Sugar Tax)

Episode Summary

The idea of a sugar tax has hit Australia, following in the footsteps of countries including Great Britain, Fiji, Belgium, France and parts of the USA.

But is a Sugar tax the answer to our obesity problem here in Australia? You know where we are going with this. Of course not! If a tax on cigarettes has done little to stop people smoking, the $8.6 billion obesity epidemic is hardly going to be rescued by charging more for sugary foods.

In this episode, we discuss our own solutions to the issue, including a shift in philosophy around food pricing, and a shakeup of the health system, just to name two.

You may also hear some singing and jokes as always in this episode
