They have recommended a 5% price increase and 20% tax on sugary soft drinks, that Doctors consider a major contributor to the global obesity epidemic that currently faces the UK. Doctors at the AMRC are united in identifying obesity as the greatest health problem facing the UK, with every 1 in 4 adults in England being obese.
