Will 1 Cent Per Calorie Minimum Food Prices Reverse Obesity Crisis?

Shared by Seamus

Yes, please tax me, that got me to quit drinking and boozing.

With obesity on the rise, could there be a seemingly easy solution? The One Cent Solution to obesity: Require a minimum price of 1 cent per calorie of food at restaurants and fast food outlets. Would you order Outback Steakhouse cheese fries if they cost $29.00? Jack in the Box’s Bacon Ultimate Cheeseburger at $10.70? Hmm, would cheap fast food become renowned fancy foodie fare?
