Denmark's "fat tax": please weigh in

Well, this sure caught my attention. In the interest of public health, Denmark's decided to impose an additional tax on food items that exceed a certain percentage of saturated fats. Butter, meats, oils, etc all will cost more in an effort to help consumers slim down. Pols in Britain are listening; this may be a trend.

Would you welcome this type of "benevolency" here?
