Default Tax on Fat

Denmark has introduced a tax on fat. This means things like pizza's, butter, flesh and so on will be much more expensive.
This is the beginning of the end, the government is going to decide what
you eat and ofcourse the poor man is the first victim as they can't afford
a steak without fat. One can say, this is good for health, but most vitamines are only soluble in fat. No problem ofcourse, you can buy vitamin tablets, this industry will be happy.
Next is ofcourse carbohydrates, they make fat too. A tax on Bananas
looks very reasonable to me.
And how about fruit, i propose that those with the least vitamines
shoud be banned. Same goes for vegetables wich might taste good
but if they the don't meet the health standard of the government they
should be banned too. Why? To transport them pollutes the environment
so better to transport only food with a health certificate from the government.
Grow your own food? HaHa, they will forbid that too. I remember when
loads of people here had 1 pig for their own consumption. This is forbidden now too. With the upcoming of genetic modified crops the
chance is that your home grown food will cross with the modified one and they don't want that.
More and more the government is ruling your private life..very sad!

They do realize that eating fats actually prevents obesity? Fats make you fell full thus preventing overeating. Regardless, if you overeat any type of energy source (fat, carbohydrate, protein), you're going to gain weight!

I guess that's what happens when politicians make decisions over scientists!

LDS Freedom Forum - View topic - Judge rules you don't have a right to produce/grow your food

Judge rules that you can't milk your own cow and drink the milk or give it to others unless it is pasteurized.

The government of Denmark has come up with a lot of unhelpful legislation, such as breaking the
Schengen Agreement by instituting border controls at their borders with fellow signatories to the
agreement.
