    I’m a libertarian and we believe that we should be allowed to consume anything we want. However, we also believe in that your rights end where mine begin and if you take that stand, people that care not what happens to their health when they consume high sugar foods in large quantities, end uppaying a price in poor health, later on and that will affect everyone’s health insurance premiums. Hence, we need to curtail this viscous and irresponsible behavior that can only lead to disease and as escalated health costs for all of us.
