Comprehension STOP Use your dictionary to find out the meaning of the bold words below. The Sugar Tax Debate


!


A sugar tax is when you pay extra money for a product because it contains sugar. It is a tool used by governments to try to get people to cut down on buying too many sugary things.


Statement Should there be a tax on sugar? Argument For


Sugar is responsible for health problems across the world.


The amount of processed food and sugar- sweetened drinks that people are eating and drinking is frightening. Do you know what these foods contain?


The amount of children having teeth extracted due to sugar consumption has increased dramatically.


We need to go back to our roots and learn how to cook from scratch.


The money raised from a sugar tax should be used for food education to prevent diet- related disease from continuing.


The Government needs to make it easier for people on lower incomes to have access to fresh fruit and vegetables.


Are you a sugar addict? Do you want to have a diet-related health condition? The change has to be made now, before it’s too late.


Conclusion: There should be a tax on sugar.


68 Against


It will be the public, not soft drinks companies, that will end up paying the costs of the new tax.


The tax is badly targeted. Fruit juices and milk-based drinks will be excluded, meaning some of the most- sugary drinks will escape the tax. For example, a standard extra-large hot chocolate contains 15 teaspoons of sugar – double the recommended daily maximum for an adult. But because it’s a milk-based drink, it will be exempt from the tax.


The tax will hit the poorest hardest – why should the rich get richer while the poor get poorer?


The amount of people drinking soft drinks is actually falling. Statistics show that purchases of soft drinks have actually decreased.


It’s only a bit of sugar, and it’s cheap, so why not enjoy it?


There should not be a tax on sugar.
