雅思大作文:吃快餐带来的健康问题

In some countries an increasing number of people are suffering from health problems as a result of eating too much fast food. It is therefore necessary for governments to impose a higher tax on this kind of food.

To what extent do you agree or disagree with this opinion?

The growth of the fast food industry has, without doubt, impacted on the eating habits and the health of many societies around the world. Diabetes, high cholesterol, heart and respiratory problems are all on the rise due to fatty and sugar-rich food. However, the question is whether higher tax would improve this situation or not.

毫无疑问,快餐行业的发展已经对世界上许多社会的饮食习惯和健康产生了影响。由于富含脂肪和糖分的食物,糖尿病、高胆固醇、心脏病和呼吸系统疾病的发病率都在上升。然而,问题是提高税收是否会改善这种状况。

From an economic point of view, higher tax might seem sensible. In countries such as the USA, Australia and Britain, the healthcare system spends a large part of its budget on people with diet-related health problems. It could be argued that these people have caused their own illnesses because of their choice of food. In this case, why should they expect the state to pay for their treatment? The tax could help fund the healthcare system.

从经济角度来看,增税似乎是明智的。在美国、澳大利亚和英国等国家,医疗系统的大部分预算都花在了与饮食有关的健康问题上。可以这样说,这些人是由于他们对食物的选择而导致了自己的疾病。在这种情况下,他们为什么要指望政府为他们的治疗买单?这项税收可以为医疗体系提供资金。

However, we also need to consider which socio-economic group consumes fast food as the main part of their diet. Statistics indicate that lower income groups eat more of this food than wealthier people. One possible reason for this is that fast food is far cheaper than fresh produce. This is because many governments offer large subsidies to farmers who provide products for the fast food industry, such as corn, wheat and beef. Fruit and vegetables, on the other hand, are not subsidised. Research suggests that many families simply cannot afford to buy healthy food or pay higher taxes on fast food. For them, fast food is not a choice but a necessity.

然而,我们也需要考虑哪个社会经济群体以快餐为主要饮食。统计数据显示,收入较低的人群比较富裕的人群吃得更多。一个可能的原因是快餐比新鲜食品便宜得多。这是因为许多政府向为快餐行业提供产品的农民提供大量补贴,如玉米、小麦和牛肉。另一方面,水果和蔬菜不受补贴。研究表明,许多家庭根本买不起健康食品,也无法为快餐支付更高的税收。对他们来说,快餐不是一种选择,而是一种必需品。

In conclusion, imposing a higher tax on fast food does not seem to be the answer. If the government chose to do this, it would only lead to greater poverty and families facing further hardship.

总之,对快餐征收更高的税似乎不是答案。如果政府选择这样做,只会导致更大的贫困和家庭面临进一步的困难。
