The current obesity rate in the United States is 35.7%. If the Minnesota government were to implement a tax on foods with high fat content, it would benefit society by decreasing consumption and production of foods with high fat content. This decrease in consumption and production would lower the obesity rate and the average BMI. The tax would also generate revenue that could be used to campaign for healthier lifestyles and to subsidize healthier foods, making fruits and vegetables cheaper.
