this is on the rising numbers of people on a sickness benefit for the above reasons..
yet, it dosen’t touch on the cause of this obesity epidemic..
the poisonous sugar/sodium/whatever, laden crap masquerading as food and drink pushed onto/into society by unscrupulous food/drink manufacturers and retailers..
that’s it..in a nutshell..
the other day (see; ‘really, really, big sugar hit’) i found out that a 550 gram jar of basics jam, (as flogged by foodtown and a big seller in areas of high obesity, eh? ‘cos it’s cheap, eh?), contains over twelve and a half ounces of sugar!
that’s 330 grams of sugar out of a total weight of 550 grams..
if you want further proof that these items on supermarket shelves pretending to be food aren’t that, you can start checking out the levels of sodium (another nasty) in this rubbish they flog to us..
now..tell me that dosen’t suck..and is compelling evidence for the food/drink industries to be controlled/overseen..
they have brought this on their own heads by their own behaviour/practices in knowing the harm they are causing, yet caring not a jot..
profit and margins are what concern them, not the health of their customers/victims..
they must be made to ‘see the light’, eh?
