Living, wheezing, wobbling proof that hormone injected cows make for fatty humans is beyond scientific dispute even though we prefer to sniggle and ignore the root of the condition. It’s too scary, nobody in their right mind would fore go a sneaky snack, the fat alone tastes great. Top chefs confess when all else fails in a recipe, they add butter.
Self-stigmatised Americans consume the majority of the world’s cattle enhancement chemicals and when we take a cursory look at practices in the poultry industry, it’s far worse than one could imagine. In pre-globalised Britain, a chicken could set one back an absolute fortune because egg production wasn’t tied to cheap euro imports from battery hen-itentiaries. Today, a not much larger than pigeon-sized barbequed yard bird costs £3.50 in London and it doesn’t taste very much like chicken used to either.
Enter the Nanny State, treating the symptoms of the problem is far more profitable than attacking the cause. They’re able to create jobs in pharmaco-alimentational markets for things mankind never required before and foreign medical instruments manufacturers are positively ecstatic too. The tendency of parasitic UK bureaucracy to perpetuate itself beyond reasonable size always commences with the manufactured concern for kids before whacking taxpayers with billions in gee-wiz cost projections;
“In the UK, we need our government to take the lead and make it easier to be healthier, such as by ensuring children are fully protected from junk food marketing on and off line.” Health minister Anne Milton said: “We have no current plans to impose a ‘fat tax’, but we are working with food companies to reduce fat, sugar and salt and ensure healthier options are available.”
No mention of those nasty, corporate profit-bulging hormones or Andrew Lansley’s initiative to sell off the NHS to private interests long before the monetised epidemic ravages the country. Money-spinning fads of the hare-brained kind used to cross the Atlantic every ten years or so but lately, they’re arriving almost daily and back to back. Taxing people to death being a time-honoured tradition in Britain, deconstructing the method used to accomplish it effectively provides mesmerising food for thought.
“The predictions for 19 years’ time also show that an additional 461,000 people would develop heart disease – “deeply worrying” news for The British Heart Foundation.”
