The bansturbators have been busy this week, first a report damning meat because “people who have a diet high in animal protien are more likely to get cancer” was published amid call for the government to act to curtail meat consumption to save us from ourselves.
The report was not entirely untrue, if you eat mostly meat and dairy, bread and chips you have about a 1 in 10000 higher chance of developing cancer. It failed to mention however that vegetarians live less long (by about six months) that people who eat a varied diet with plenty of fruit and leaf vegetables.
The the sugar nazis started up. They are calling for a tax on Mars bars.Sugar causes obesity and is addictive, it should be treated as a drug, these people say. So matchstick thin folk who like a steak or enjoy an addictive sugary snack or fizzy drink or people who like a slice of cake with their afternoon cuppa must be punished with a tax.
So what kind of people do these bansturbators want us to be? Would they have us like this guy perhaps?
