In Kerala, 'fat tax' on burger, pizza

喀拉拉邦,对汉堡和比萨征收“脂肪税”

Thiruvananthapram: In a bid to crack down on junk food and squeeze out revenue, the Kerala government has for the first time imposed a 14.5% "fat tax" on burgers, pizza, tacos, doughnuts, sandwiches and pasta sold at branded restaurants and food retail giants.

Presenting the budget for 2016-17, finance minister Thomas Issac said on Friday that the key concern was to shore up tax revenue but officials said the levy was introduced for health reasons as well.

为了打击垃圾食品,并从中榨出收入,喀拉拉邦政府第一次对品牌餐馆和零售巨头出售的汉堡、比萨、玉米饼、甜甜圈、三明治和意大利面等征收“脂肪税”

财政部长Thomas Issac汇报了2016-17年度的预算,他说,主要是为了增加税收,然而有官员称,这一税收的引入也是出于健康考量的。

"There has been an alarming trend in the growth of unhealthy eating habits among Keralites and we hope the fat tax will be a deterrent," said Rajan N Khobragade, commissioner of commercial taxes.

The state government expects an additional revenue of Rs 10 crore out of the tax. Kerala ranks third after Punjab and Gujarat in terms of obesity, according to health experts.

“喀拉拉邦人的不健康饮食习惯的抬头趋势敲响了警钟,我们希望脂肪税能够产生威慑作用,”工商税专员Khobragade说

邦政府希望这一税收能带来1亿卢比的额外收入。有健康专家指出,就肥胖方面,喀拉拉邦位列旁遮普和古吉拉特邦之后排第三。

However, the total percentage of obese people is only 3-4% of total population in the state. The percentage of obesity cases (people with 37.5 BMI) who require bariatric surgery is even less, and most of the overweight population have BMI in the range of 25-30, which does not require treatment.

然而,喀拉拉邦肥胖者只占总人口的3-4%。而需要接受减肥手术的肥胖者(身体质量指数BMI为37.5)的比例更低,大多数超重者的BMI介于25-30之间,是不需要治疗的。

If Kerala govt is really concerned about health of people then it should ban red meat products or at least meat like beef, etc should be taxed heavily. But I don''t understand how the left front which was against govt dictating eating habits can take such action.

如果喀拉拉邦政府真的关心人们的健康,那就禁售红色肉类,至少要对牛肉之类的肉类征收重税。

非常好的主意,此举能有效遏制肥胖和不健康的生活方式

这还做得不够,因为肥胖最终会让每一位纳税人付出代价的
