    First they came for cigarettes, then soda. Will those favoring taxes as a remedy for health problems now come for our barbecue?

    Slapping taxes on processed meat and red meat could prevent 222,000 deaths and save $41 billion in global health costs every year, according to a new study.

    The figures are based on studies that have linked red meat consumption to cancer, diabetes and stroke. In the U.S., the proposed tax would be set at 163 percent on processed meat such as sausages or bacon, and 34 percent on red meat, like steak or ground beef.

    "In the U.S.A., tax levels are much higher because the health system is one of the least efficient in the word," said Marco Springmann, the study's lead author. It's not the highest, though: Germany, Austria, Norway and Sweden all would see a slightly higher meat tax under this system, the study showed.

    Springmann said the idea for the study came several years ago, when the World Health Organization declared certain types of meat were carcinogenic. "If it's a carcinogen, surely it ought to be regulated in some way, because governments have a responsibility to protect their citizens from carcinogens," he said.

    No sir, the government is not responsible for that, or telling anyone they can't drink more than 64 ounces of soda.

    Its going to be the excuse (or one of many) that need implementation to keep afloat the single payer universal healthcare. After all, its those that engage in their own lifestyles and make their own choices that are the problem.

    Meat is a superfood and literally the best thing for you.

    Carbs kill, and plants are inflammatory.

    Easy to see which one the junk medical science racket is pushing.
