So should it be regulated in the same way as cigarettes, or other foods linked to poor health like sugary drinks?

Roundtable debates a red meat tax after researchers said price rises could reduce consumption, save lives and more than $40 billion globally in annual health costs Joining us at the Roundtable was Bill Wirtz, Policy Analyst, Consumer Choice Center; Marco Springmann, Fellow, Future of Food Programme, Oxford University; Kirsten Davies, Nutritionist and Founder of ‘The Food Remedy’; and Sophia Lowes, Health Information Manager, Cancer Research UK.
