I like pizza as many Americans do. And I don’t want to have to pay any more for pizza than it is worth. But the government feels differently. Researchers writing in the journal Archives of Internal Medicine feel differently. These researchers argue that if you increase the price of pizza by 10 percent would reach a 12% decrease in the amount of calories consumed. I understand that the government wants to protect people from obesity but I don’t think they should be doing it. Taxes on things like pizza are not fair to those who choose to occasionally eat pizza but otherwise live healthy lives.
