Sugar tax

Brighton and Hove Council in the UK, teamed with Jamie Oliver, the chef and food campaigner, have announced that they are going to recommend a voluntary 10p 'health tax' on soft drinks with added sugar. 

While it's a good move, it doesn't go far enough. I suspect 10p isn't enough to make a huge difference- it probably should be something like 50p. But also it should be an all high sugar drinks - fruit smoothies for instance - not just those with added sugar.
