Don’t listen to our ‘nanny in chief’
Dear Sir, — On a recent visit to two South American nations, I observed that there were few local people whom we might refer to in the UK as either overweight or obese.
Upon enjoying and reflecting upon their diet, I noted that they ate a good proportion of red meat and dairy, with soft drinks at the sugar content we traditionally had here (though “zero” versions were available).
I have given a lot of thought to how this disparity may have come about and have concluded that government interference in our diet may be the cause.
