Are You Ready To Pay More For Soda?

...that's right! 
It is probably coming..

The United States once held the position of: industrialized country with the most severe weight problems.

..Only to be passed by Mexico(70% overweight, 32.8% obese)... 

so what did Mexico do?


Starting in January of 2014, Mexicans have had to pay a 10% tax on soda.

what did this do?

           Sugary Drink purchases decreased by 10%

           Non-Sugary Drink purchases increased by 7%

           Plain Water purchases increased by 13%
**first quarter of 2014 compared to 2013**

Talk of this tax is gaining 
momentum in California

San Francisco has bee crunching numbers and is estimated that the funds raised would total $35 million to $54 million annually.

What will that money go to?

children’s nutrition and physical education programs.

What are your thoughts and concerns on this?
