targeting specific products and services for taxation at a rate significantly higher than other goods and services on the market?

It is an abundantly well proven fact that if anything is taxed excessively, less of it will be produced because less of it will be consumed.
Granny be Cookin'!!!Taxation of certain products more than others is just another way of controlling people's lives. Taxation doesn't always work - like with cigarettes. Higher booze taxes doesn't stop people from drinking. These kinds of taxes just make it harder.
People are still going to get their kids soft drinks, all kinds of sugary stuff, McDonald's, Burger King, etc. It's not going to do all that much to reduce obesity. It's convenient. Just like prepared frozen dinners. They're convenient, not necessarily good for you. And, God knows, it seems like the art of cooking has pretty much gone by the wayside to accommodate great careers, too little time, too little patience, etc.
