When Michael Gove declared that the people of this country had “enough experts”, his political opponents were very against him. I think it may have been For me, it’s because there’s a certain kind of expert who just can’t be pissed off.
nutrition expert. I’m sure they are just trying to help. However, their findings can be very confusing. Because as soon as one groundbreaking nutrition study is published, another groundbreaking nutrition study contradicts it.
take the egg In 2018, it was reported that eating six eggs a week reduced the risk of early death. was reported to increase the risk of premature death. Why does 6 eggs prolong life and 7 shorten it? I don’t know. Maybe that’s why they sell their eggs in cartons of 6. The 7th will knock you over the edge. The rest is red wine. Is it good or bad for you? I do not know. In January 2021, a study published that drinking a glass of red wine a day could cause heart problems. But just three months later, another study claimed that drinking a glass of red wine a day could prevent heart disease.
And the confusion doesn’t end there. In 2008, one study found that wine was bad for memory, while another found it was good for memory.At least, I think that’s what the study said. Is difficult. I may have had too much wine. Or not enough. Still, there is at least one thing all experts agree on. Ultra-processed foods like potato chips, ham and sugary breakfast cereals are bad for you. I have. I am not disputing the scientists’ findings. But it’s their solution that I disagree with. They argue that governments should discourage us from buying ultra-processed foods. give them huge taxesWhat a horrible proposal! And if the Tories are stupid enough to go along with it, they’re even more lost than we thought. am. One night, many of us have time to cook only ultra-processed foods. And even when we have time to make something healthier, our kids like junk.
My son’s favorite foods are chicken nuggets, peperami, and cheerios. If he liked it, he would eat all three at every meal. I don’t know how you’re going to get him to eat vegetables when he’s an adult.
But there is one more important point. Imagine adding a tax on the most affordable food in a cost of living crisis where grocery prices have already surged 16.7%. I don’t know if these scientists at Imperial have ever tried raising a 21st century British child on a diet of kale and mung beans, perhaps they could try that as their next experiment. can make it, right. They will surely regret it. Either way, the junk tax should be cut, even if inflation isn’t tripling every second. It is the state of the most joyless, sacred, overbearing nanny. Tories should believe in individual responsibility, not government interference. So if you want to lose weight, you’ll have to rely on old-fashioned willpower.
Rather like nutrition experts, our politicians seem hopelessly confused.At one point, they worry that a rapidly aging society is unsustainable. Then they are panicking that our unhealthy diet will lead us to an early death Surely these poor simple people can join the dots Obviously the first problem is You can solve it with his second problem. Instead of encouraging us to eat less junk food, the government should encourage us to eat more junk food.
Hand out free packets of Frosty at school. Have your GP prescribe Turkey Twizzler on the NHS. Replace fluoride in tap water with Irn-Bru. Then the government would not have to raise the national pension age to his 68.
