We can’t base public health policy on one MP’s experience


Dear Ellie I agree that we need a plurality of approaches to losing weight and maintaining that weight loss. However, you must agree we have been sleep walking into a sugar scandal. Up until recently, it has been completely unregulated and added to so many kids drinks and foods. Couple this with fast food and processed food, you can see why obesity has exploded. Government needs to make the food and drink industries accountable and we cannot continue allowing profit to come before health. We have been doing this for far too long with cigarettes and alcohol.
