Dr Alf is right,we need variable taxes on foods, strict limits on sugar, salt, E numbers and harmful chemicals in foods, and limits to chemicals like Bis-phenol A in tins, packaging materials, till rolls and plastics.

People need to know how to cook and cooking should not be done in aluminium foil, saucepans ,pots or frying pans as this metal can cause dementia.

Ahead of an extended trip to India in January, this Economist article caught my eye. It’s WELL WORTH A READ. Check it out!

 

via The journey of an Indian onion: Lords of the rings | The Economist.

 

Personally, I am not a great fan of the likes of Walmart and Tesco. I believe that they tend to use their extra muscle to bully suppliers and workers alike. However, I have to agree with the Economist that India desperately needs rationalization of the food chain. The story looks at the life of an onion.

 

Any thoughts?
