Taxing the Fat

Should we tax food that is bad for us? Can using laws work in making people healthier? We hear from reporter Marie Keyworth about Denmark's fat tax experiment and ask whether such a system could work anywhere else. Sam Rowe of UNESDA represents the european soft drinks industry and gives us her take. She debates Dr Kelly Brownell, Dean of Sanford School of Public Policy at Duke University in New York.
