Fat tax in Denmark
From October 1st in Denmark tax on groceries will have the nutritional composition as a criteria. It will penalize products that are high in saturated fats. This despite being a country with an obesity rate altogether lower (less than 10%) than other European countries. In France in 2012 sugary drinks will be taxed more. All of this may make sense, economically and culturally.
