Over the years, medical experts have been battling the fast food health related problems. Some of these health problems include obesity and weight-related health issues such as diabetes. However, this has not been a success for the Australian government. Relying on the food industry to control diet has been unsuccessful. The food manufacturers are concerned with the acquired profit, but not the public health. This can only change when another force takes things in another direction. The Australian Medical Association has been on the forefront in this noble fight to save the Australian people. The association established in 1962 after the merger of British medical association branches.

It advocates on behalf of its members and the society at the federal state and territory state. Through research, the association has discovered that fighting these illnesses requires more than the use of drugs lowering cholesterol or working out in gymnasiums. Introduction of a fast food tax would be an important intervention in Australia; this will assist the medical experts in winning the fast food health related illness fight. The following are the arguments of the Australian Medical Association as to why the government should impose taxes on fast food.
