Dental News: Sugar tax report supported by the dental profession.

The British Dental Health Foundation supports the idea of a tax on sugar and in particular sugary drinks.
On 30 November 2015 The Commons’ Health Select Committee called for an introduction of a sugar tax in particular to support moves in imp-roving children’s held.
The committee said there was “compelling evidence” the tax would help to protect children’s health generations in particular to tackle such serious conditions as tooth decay and obesity.
A senior official of the British Dental Health Foundation has stated “What we are seeing is a paradigm shift, with this report real pressure will be put on ministers who have so far resisted a tax, they cannot now ignore the fact that it will have a real and hugely positive effect on the nation’s health”.
