Doctors demand sporting tax cuts

The Royal College of GPs has called for tax relief on sports activities to encourage people to do more sport and reduce obesity levels.

The call comes as the government prepares to unveil its public health white paper on how it intends to halt rising obesity in adults and children. At the same time, GPs will discuss the issue of the costs of obesity and what doctors can do to treat it at a conference at London’s Royal Society of Medicine on Thursday, the BBC reported. Earlier this year, the government was forced to deny that it planned to introduce a levy on products such as burgers, crisps, fizzy drinks, butter and whole milk in order to cut obesity levels.
