Any food can be a junk food if you eat too much of it.
Stupid people are like Glowsticks. You want to snap them in half and shake the crap out of them until they see the light.
I love sarcasm. It's like punching someone in the head ... only with words

How to define the "junk food"? Without this prerequisite, the idea is unenforceable.

Why do you want to punish 95% of Americans?

if the authorities want to tax junk food, they themselves can define what junk food is.

to me, any food that is not natural food is junk food.. ..natural food is food from nature....so a lot of food out there is unhealthy. ...food is important, you function from it, so you need to make sure that what you are eating is good for you. ...it's sad if you need the tax to deter you.

i used to love junk food but i changed my attitude. now i love natural food. i used to feel so stuffed and sluggish after eating junk food, but now that i'm more careful about what i eat, i feel much better. it's better to be thin and energetic.

but i remember reading somewhere junk food is just processed food....i would not say that jiaozi is junk food, except for questionable flour part, but it depends on how the flour was processed. i'm not sure what type of flour is used.
