Comment on Why we need a tax on junk food by Meg.

“The only food that shouldn’t be taxed is organic wholefoods.” To bad most of those food are inaccessable to the people who need them most. Your attitude is unrealistic and elitist–If you think it’s easy for everyone to buy whole organic food try living in a low income “food desert” with a limited budget and no reliable transportation, then see how much organic whole food you can buy! What is more, in areas where taxes have been tried it hasn’t been proven to have much of an effect on consumption.
