The new sugary drinks levy that was introduced today by the British Government is a very pleasing decision. Being vegan is not just about eliminating meat fish and dairy from your diet. It is also about being healthy and too much sugar is never healthy. I have a sweet tooth but i try to use nice fruits to curb my sweet tooth craving.
This new government levy will help to tackle the problems with obesity , life threatening illnesses and tooth decay. Mr Osborne told MPs: “Doing the right thing for the next generation is what this government and this Budget is about. He also said: “I am not prepared to look back at my time here in this Parliament, doing this job and say to my children’s generation, ‘I’m sorry, we knew there was a problem with sugary drinks and we knew it caused disease but we dumped the difficult decisions and did nothing’.”
Celebrity and Health food activist Chef Jamie Oliver, a vocal campaigner for a sugar tax, said the Chancellor’s announcement that he will tax the soft drinks industry was “amazing news”
