result of eating too much fast food. It is therefore necessary for governments to impose a

Given the rising number of people affected by health problems as a result of consuming too much convenience food in some countries, some people opine that governments have the responsibility to levy a higher tax on this sort of food. I firmly believe that imposing higher junk food tax is justifiable due to its merits pertaining to improving citizens’ health and raising revenues of governments to do other community projects.

Firstly, the implement of higher tax on fast food can make people healthier by reducing the number of people buying this unhealthy kind of food with its expensive price. With the higher tax having to pay, the manufacturers of convenience food would make their products much more expensive to offset the capital and make a profit. This higher cost would counter the most common reason why people choose to eat junk food, which is its cheap price, and therefore, it is able to reduce the number of people consuming this sort of food. Thus, in the long-term, it would bring in its wake a healthier society in general with less health problems relating to eating too much junk food.

Another salient reason why imposing tax on convenience food is reasonable is that it can raise a large amount of money for the governments to benefit their citizens. Higher tax is paid means that higher money is funded to the revenues of the governments. Granted, the governments can use this money to raise people’s awareness about fast food in particular, and eating habit in general. Consequently, people can acknowledge that junk food have the pernicious effect on the health and therefore, reduce their frequency of consuming this kind of food. In addition, the money financed by tax on fast food can be used in other charitable donations or environmental protection programs in order to enhance the live conditions of their citizens.

To summarize, I personally think that governments should implement higher fast food tax since it is beneficial in terms of undermining the health issues and improving the social life of the nations.

Given the rising number of people affected by health problems as a result of consuming too much convenience food in some countries, some people opine have suggested (This word is quite rare. I have never used it myself. Avoid these odd and rare words.) that governments have the responsibility to levy a higher tax on this sort of food. I firmly believe that imposing a higher junk food tax is justifiable due to its merits pertaining to improving citizens’ health and raising revenues of governments to do other community projects. (off-topic. )

Firstly, First, the implement (wrong word. An implement - noun - is a tool.) of higher tax on fast food can make people healthier by reducing the number of people buying this unhealthy kind of food with its expensive (wrong word. A Rolex watch is expensive. An Apple iPhone is expensive. Designer clothes are expensive. We buy watches, smartphones and clothes. We do not buy prices.) price. With the higher tax having to pay, (ungrammatical) the manufacturers (Food is not manufactured. Cars and phones are manufactured.) producers of convenience food would make their products much more expensive to offset the capital (That does not make sense.) and make a profit. This higher cost would counter the most common reason why people choose to eat junk food, which is because it is cheap, its cheap (wrong word. ) price, and therefore, it is able to reduce the number of people consuming this sort of food. Thus, in the long-term, (no hyphen) it would bring in its wake a healthier society in general with less health problems relating to eating too much junk food.

Another salient reason why imposing a tax on convenience food is reasonable is that it can raise a large amount of money for the governments to benefit their citizens. Higher taxes is paid means that the government has more revenue to spend on improving the citizens' well-being. that higher money is funded to the revenues of the governments. (That is very awkward. It does not make sense.) Granted, the governments can use this money to raise people’s awareness about fast food in particular, and eating habit (wrong form. ) in general. Consequently, people can acknowledge that junk food has a negative have the pernicious (wrong word. ) effect on the health and therefore, they will reduce their frequency of consuming this kind of food. The tax money can also build more hospitals, train doctors and provide medical care for people who have diabetes and other illnesses related to unhealthy diets. In addition, the money financed by tax on fast food can be used in other charitable donations or environmental protection programs in order to enhance the live conditions of their citizens.

To summarize, I personally think that governments should impose a implement higher fast food tax since it is beneficial in terms of undermining avoiding certain health issues and improving the social life of the nations.

Thank you so much for your feedback. I noticed that you didn't reccommend using the word "Fistly". Please tell me why we should not use that word.
