Here’s some of the interesting stories I found in the news this week
The growing debate over fat tax. Do you think that adding a tax on food that isn’t good for you will keep people from eating it? Personally, I think it depends on how much extra it will cost. I lived in Nunavut for 3 years and everything up North is expensive but I remember pop in the winter months was hovering around 30$ for a case of 24 and people would still buy it.

Tim Hortons turns into a triage for the hospital. Is this what things are coming down to? We are so short on room in hospitals that we have to start moving beds into coffee shops? Kind of scary! Now as far as I know the Tim Hortons was on-site and was closed at the time but still…
One in four Canadian adults are considered obese.. an alarming number but the U.S is at one in three. Is this really something we should be proud of beating our American neighbours at?

I finish off with these two videos. I think it’s related to your health because you’re obviously not very healthy if you’re dead. Also I think it’s important to watch because it will change the way you think about buckling up. It has for me! They really should put these commercials on Canadian television, would probably save some lives!
