The so-called ‘Health Lobby’ is under attack – but NOT by the gutter Press?

  It was of some surprise last Sunday, to read in a respected broadsheet newspaper, a major article attacking the Governments (some would say weak?) attempts to curtail the food industry’s continued flooding of Britain with unnecessarily over-sugared food and drink. It is hardly the responsible action of a major quality newspaper, to publish a […]

‘England a Nation of Shopkeepers’ – replaced by ‘Britain a Nation of Gluttony & Sloth’?

The UK is the Leader in Europe once again! Shame on us all! We are officially the most obese country in western Europe. [Obesity has tripled here over past 30 years, for god’s sake]. But how the hell has that disastrous situation come about, eh? Is it an illness epidemic? NO, but it is certainly […]

Obesity in Children – disgraceful parental neglect?

This is a follow-up post to that titled ”Obesity in Adults – a life destroyer and a threat to Earth’s survival?” which was published here last week. Those who have read the earlier post would know about the disastrous course for the Planet that mankind is set on regarding overpopulating it and into the bargain […]

Obesity in Adults – a life destroyer and a threat to Earth’s survival?

  There can be no doubt about it in anyone’s mind can there? There is an epidemic of obesity sweeping the World that is threatening our human existence with extinction and indeed survival of this very planet, isn’t there? The increasingly heavy burden on the world’s population imposed by obesity affects both rich and poor […]

Our Society is being destroyed by ‘Obesity’ – time for it to be a Criminal act?

There has always been fat people around hasn’t there? If they were children they got verbally teased by their fellow pupils. If they were adults they were silently pitied. But they were certainly ‘noticed’. Why was that? It was because there were so few of them, that’s why. These days in Britain you can’t go […]

Horsemeat Not Fit For Human Consumption

The ongoing publicity about contamination of beef products with horsemeat is becoming increasingly annoying. The major issue is not that the consumer is being fleeced and defrauded, nor that the food is mislabelled, nor that it is horsemeat, it is that material is entering the food chain that is uncontrolled and uncertified as passed ‘fit […]

Full of Salt & Fat NOT

The horsemeat scandal has highlighted the value of cooking your own food and avoiding processed food meals. Many people are busy and think that cooking is difficult and time consuming – it doesn’t have to be. You can cook a simple nutritious meal while totally avoiding a complicated cordon bleu recipe. One of the best […]

Pig’s Ear – or just horsemeat masquerading as beef?

The government are making a pig’s ear of dealing with the horsemeat crisis. Their response has been abysmal – slow and inadequate, too little action too late. This is while the scale of the contamination of beef is proving to be quite astounding. The Conservatives have got a appalling history of dealing with food crisis’s […]

Horses for courses………

For days the newspapers have been full of reports of horsemeat being substituted for beef in processed food. The nation is shocked. We don’t eat horses. The real disgrace is that this has been brought about by the never ending quest for cheaper food, driven by the supermarkets, and the dreadful increasing dependency on processed […]
