Three cities in California, San Francisco, Oakland and Albany will add a one cent-per-ounce tax and in Boulder, Colorado voters approved a 2 cents-per-ounce tax. In San Francisco alone, the tax is expected to generate 15 million dollars and in Boulder it is projected to pull in $3.8 million. But, will these funds, which will be taken from the beverage distributors, help with sugar-related health concerns?
“I like this. It’s being proactive. We know the deleterious effect that sugar like this can have on adults, on women, on pregnant women and especially our kids as they are developing,” Plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon says of the tax.
ER physician Dr. Travis Stork points out that sugar is not evil, but over-consumption can lead to health issues, saying excessive sugar can have similar effects to the use of tobacco. He notes that for each sugary beverage a child drinks their risk for obesity increases by 60 percent and women who drink one sugary beverage per day are twice as more likely to develop diabetes.
“These are things we cannot ignore…but I always wonder where the money will end up going,” Dr. Stork says. “If it goes to the right place and does good things for public health, then I can really get on board.”
Are you on board with taxing beverage companies on sugary beverages?
