Present a written argument or case to an educated reader with no specialist knowledge of the following topic:
Many manufactured food and drink products contain high levels of sugar, which causes many health problems. Sugary products should be made more expensive to encourage people to consume less sugar. Do you agree or disagree?
Long-standing controversy surrounds health, particularly diseases brought on by sugar. Opponents contend that high-carbohydrate products should be more expensive to deter consumers from purchasing. However, I think there are more practical measures.
On the one hand, increasing the price of sweets is unquestionably a logical answer. The fact that consumers frequently base their purchases on an item’s cost and worth cannot be contested. They would, on average, consume less harmful food and drink if they felt that buying sweeten was not worthwhile due to an exorbitant price. They frequently opt for healthy pleasures like bananas instead. This results in a healthy diet with sugar limitations.
However, increasing the price of sugary goods is, in some ways, quite unreasonable. A more realistic solution that addresses the root of the issue is education. They will only purchase and consume foods and beverages that contain sweets if public knowledge is increased. To put it another way, the price is higher, yet a sizable portion of customers are likely to continue their previous shopping patterns. The removal of carbohydrates is their responsibility as they are informed about the negative effects of sweets. Additionally, the government’s infringement on manufacturers to limit the levels of carbs is a smart way to do this.
In conclusion, I would argue that there are many more practical options besides raising prices to reduce sugar intake and the subsequent health issues caused by a sweet diet.
