Tax on Meat

Philosopher Peter Singer suggests implementing a tax on animal products in order to discourage their consumption such as the taxes on cigarettes that saved many lives – not only the lives of people who are discouraged from smoking as much as they would if cigarettes were cheap, but also the lives of others who spend less time passively inhaling smoke. According to Singer meat-eaters impose costs on others, and the more meat they eat, the greater the costs. Meat-eaters raise our health insurance premiums, increase Medicare and Medicaid costs for taxpayers, pollute our rivers, threaten the survival of fishing communities, push up food prices for the world’s poor, and accelerate climate change.
