Decay

Eight in ten support a tax on sugary drinks.

Last year a study reported that more than eight in ten Australians would support a tax on sugary drinks if the revenue was spent tackling childhood obesity. A recent article reported that Australian parents would cut their children's consumption of soft drinks if the cost increased, suggesting that a sugar tax would encourage people to make healthier food choices.

With increasing rates of tooth decay, obesity and diabetes, it is time for more serious action on sugar. Join us in our campaign to reduce sugar consumption and improve health.
