Denmark has introduced what is believed to be the world's first fat tax - a surcharge on foods that are high in saturated fat. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-15137948
Butter, milk, cheese, pizza, meat, oil and processed food are now subject to the tax if they contain more than 2.3% saturated fat.
Some consumers began hoarding to beat the price rise, while some producers call the tax a bureaucratic nightmare.
Others suggest that many Danes will simply start shopping abroad.
Danish officials say they hope the new tax will help limit the population's intake of fatty foods.
However, some scientists think saturated fat may be the wrong target.
They say salt, sugar and refined carbohydrates are more detrimental to health and should be tackled instead.
War is a biological necessity of the first importance, a regulative element in the life of mankind which cannot be dispensed with, since without it an unhealthy development will follow, which excludes every advancement of the race, and therefore all real civilization.-Friedrich von Bernhardi
What can be said for a man who would allow his home to be invaded by strangers who demanded they be fed, clothed, housed and granted the rights of the first-born? What can be said for a ruling elite that permits this to be done to the nation, and who celebrate it as a milestone of moral progress?-Pat Buchanan
