According to a study released by Deakin University in Melbourne recently, taxing all alcohol at 84c per standard drink would be the most effective way to reduce obesity in Australia.

The new study shows that increasing the alcohol prices is the best value for money policy to prevent obesity.

The study also shows that increasing alcohol taxes by standardising costs across different types of alcohol, would cause overall alcohol consumption to go down.Researchers say this would lead to a considerable decline in the amount of kilojules consumed by Australians every day.
