Sharing a post I read on The Diabetes Diet Blog

From the BMJ 3 July and 21 August 21

Advertisements for unhealthy food and drink will be banned before the 9pm watershed by the end of 2023 in television and on demand programmes in the UK.

Chris Thomas, a research fellow at the Institute for Public Policy would have liked to have seen measures going further, by taxation of these foods. He says that money raised could be used to fund free nutritious food for those who need it. This improves both health and the economy.

In the USA, children get two thirds of their energy intake from ultra processed foods. The proportion of calories from such food is rising steadily. In 1999 it was 61.4% and in 2018 it was 67%. As the amount of wholesome, home cooked food reduces, the levels of childhood obesity increase. Ready meals are responsible for 11.2%, and sweet snacks 12.9%. The trend is now reducing for sugary drinks, sauces and oils.

My thoughts (and Eddie’s too) are, surely it is best to eat whole fresh food from the farm or the sea. It seems the junk masquerading as food, coming out of factories has played a huge role in the epidemics of obesity and the often linked type two diabetes.
But what are your thoughts/views, please share them in the comments.

All the best Jan
