Takeaways, chip shops, coffee shops etc..responsible for obesity?

Recommended Posts

Wheat is cheap. If it were not for cheap wheat a billion people would have starved to death. The chap who invented cheap wheat won the nobel prize for it and quite right too. If you're not going to give the nobel peace prize to a guy who saved a billion lives then what is it for?

 

Trouble is that wheat is pretty empty carbs, and you can pad almost anything with it. Including meat. The difference between cheap meat and good meat, apart from the bacterial recovery system which extracts pink (sort of technically meat) slime from carcasses: added wheat.

 

Anyway. You can regulate to stop them making meat cheap by adding lots of wheat. If you're sure, and I mean really, really life-betting sure, that you aren't going to leave poor people hungry as a result. Don't think you can get away with doing it blind and then try to blame somebody else for not giving them extra money to pay for the meat you made unaffordable for them.

 

Very good point.

Cheap food is packed with fats and sugars to mask the poor quality of the ingredients and make it taste of something.

 

All processed food is loaded with sugar, even savoury things that you would never think did. Even bread has it in it. This is where the education should come in; that, and making the food processors cut out the sugar (like Jamie Oliver is petitioning for,) but the food lobbyists have the government over a barrel as per usual so that won't happen.

 

Doesn't bread need to have sugar in it for the yeast to make it rise :confused:

I make a delicious olive bread myself. I don't add sugar. I don't know the chemistry of bread making; there might be natural sugars present.

 

I think Anna B makes an otherwise valid point. Lots of processed food contains added sugar and that could be looked at. It seems a better idea than just taxing sugary drinks to me.

 

But I agree with DonaldTrump1: stir-fries take minutes and are delicious. As are many pasta dishes (And I actually prefer the healthier pasta integrale myself). And my kids will get what I give them. I'm not faffing about making different dinners because they have decided this particular day they don't like carrot.

Can't get away with being racist or sexist?? What planet do you live on?

 

Clearly a different one to you pal. Try going up and calling someone a racist name in front of a police officer and see what happens.

 

Someone I know (which just happens to be a professional goalkeeper, has just been disciplined. A opposition striker was goading him all the way through the match about his girlfriend and alluding that he had slept with her. The goalie said 'doubt it mate, she doesn't go for your sort'. The opposing player was black. That's all it took.

 

Now try doing the same calling someone fat...

Well....that does sound a bit racist. Even if that wasn't the intention. Remember a hate crime is reported as a hate crime if the victim thinks it's a hate crime. So you could report fattism as a hate crime.

I'm not sure what Bonzo's point was. You can't get away with racism. Ask Gazza! (Who I don't think was being racist, just insensitive and unthinking with his humour in this modern world)

Obese people themselves are responsible for their obesity. Nobody and nothing else.
