I agree with Ian and not just because we are good mates and both of us get involved in planning healthcare.
I might help both sides here. I have never known the UK government te people what they can or cannot eat. I have However read in the press that they do.
It sells newspapers when you confuse good healthy evidence based advice with nanny state pronouncements.
One interesting debating point here would be around whether it is in the interest of government to have healthy people in order to help NHS budgets or to kill them off to help the pensions and long term care budgets?
