Sweet spots

I was in Dublin on Thursday night debating big government tax intervention at Trinity College. While there I did a couple of interviews on the closely related topic of sugar taxes. Should you be inclined you can listen to me on Radio 4 PM (following John Ashton at 13:10) and on Five Live Question Time Extra (following Keith Vaz at 19:40).

It's been all sugar this week but it looks like there will be a change of gears next week when the WHO declares processed meat to be a Class 1 carcinogen. What a time to be alive.

In the meantime, if you're interested in the scientific debate around sugar (or fructose), this study is well worth reading.
