According to the UK’s Telegraph, following reports that the WHO is expected to publish a report listing processed meat as a cancer-causing substance, experts have criticised suggestions that bacon and sausages could be as dangerous as smoking.
Quoting so-called experts is not enough. The evidence must be published by the so-called experts. Also the experts must state their bias and links to the food manufacturing industry.
For me, the WHO guidelines should prevail.
In the UK, we have seen from the delayed proposal to introduce a ‘sugar-tax’ that powerful lobbyists are at play.
Poor diet is creating a pandemic and governments must respond with effective action.
Also I’m surprised that the Telegraph can’t spell ‘sausages’. Don’t newspapers have spell-checkers?
