Dr Alf has some good suggestions for this growing problem which lies behind both our productivity crisis and the crisis with Adult Social Care and the NHS.

What should happen as well is :

6) Variable taxes on food

7) More park and ride facilities for cities, as per Salzburg in Austria and City Centers left for pedestrians

8) Salt, sugar and e-number content reduced in all foods

9) Education on nutrition, vitamin supplementation and cookery

10) Zoning laws applied to reduce the number of fast food outlets and increase the number of healthy food outlets

11) Opt out of Alimentarius Commission directives on food and seeds and set food policy ourselves

12) Give employers tax breaks for creating workplace gyms subject to their employees losing weight and getting fitter

13) Ban cigarette smoking in all places except for a person’s home

14) Encourage the brewers to close down more pubs and create more gyms and hotels

15) Refuse surgery to obese patients and smokers until they have lost weight and stopped smoking as happens already in the North and East Herts NHS Trust in my area.

16) Remove harmful chemicals some of which cause obesity and cancer and dementia from packaging, plastic bottles, fertilizers, plastic  products, tins, tinfoil and cooking utensils

17) Ban fluoride from toothpaste, water and foodstuffs

18) Ban Aspartame

19) Eliminate aluminium saucepans and ban the use of aluminium in deodorants go for Pit Rock instead

20) Eliminate eostrogens from fertilizer and water

21) Promote exercise in counrty parks and Tai Chi in village halls

22)Promote the growing of vegetables and gardening in general

23) Reintroduce 2 years of National Service for all youngsters and Civilian Conservation for the long term unemployed

24) Reinstate school playing fields and domestic science
