Denmark’s Fat Tax

Yesterday was the first day the Danish government started taxing certain food items. The idea is to discourage the consumption of saturated fat.

If you’re at all into the low-carb and/or paleo lifestyle then you know that saturated fat isn’t quite the evil that it’s made out to be. So while the Danish government taxes it to improve health, it’s likely that health won’t improve and those that do eat these foods will be penalized for no good reason.
