Big-government nanny-staters have been arguing for some time for a “fat tax”, often with the accompanying cries of “think of the children!”
Researchers at National Taiwan University and the University of Arkansas investigated the data found in the National Health Interview Survey in Taiwan.
The results, published in the Journal of Happiness Studies, demonstrate that “children who ate fast food and drank soft drinks were more likely to be overweight, but they were also less likely to be unhappy. “
It would seem a tax on fast food is yet another tax on happiness.
