The Health Ministry has sent a proposal to the government to increase prices of sweet and greasy food products, said Rasoul Dinarvand, head of the Food and Drug Administration. “Such foods as well as certain other habits including smoking are extremely harmful to public health and strict measures need to be taken to reduce their consumption,” he stressed, IRNA reported. Banning advertisements of unhealthy food products and increasing value added tax are two efficacious strategies in this regard. “We have been successful in implementing the former,” he said.
