I believe that there should not be a tax on junk food because, although it might add motivation to loose weight and eat healthier, it should be a person's choice whether or not to eat healthy. We should be promoting healthier lifestyles, yes, I agree wholeheartedly with that but I don't think that throwing extra charge onto items is the right way to do it. Rather than having money make up people's mind on whether or not to eat right, let them decide. If they choose to eat poorly a lot, then they have made a bad choice, but the important thing is that is was their choice. It wasn't decided by the government, the school, or even their wallets. It was decided by them, and in my opinion that is correct thing. Life is filled with mistakes and bad choices, but mistakes and bad choices is how we learn.
