The Japanese, and people everywhere, need to avoid junk foods, and all sensibly run countries should have variable taxes on foods to penalize the consumption of sugar, salt, e-numbers and dangerous chemicals in food, devoid of nutritional value.

Consuming these junk foods may seem trendy but they will send you to an early grave, just as surely as a .38 calibre bullet.

Dr Alf will know that the people with the greatest longevity in the developed world are Japanese woman, with devout Mormons coming a close second.

The people who live longest in the world as a whole are the Hunzas, an agrarian people living in what used to be Soviet Central Asia, who exist on a natural diet rich in Apricots and thus Vitamin B17 which is no longer part of the Western diet.

Living to be aged 140, in a Hunza community is not uncommon, whilst people in Lake Limone in Northern Italy live longer than almost everyone in Western Europe.

The lesson from all of this is for all of us to emulate the best dietary and nutritional practices of those people who live longest, not Americans who have even shorter average lifespans than Britons, who have the worst longevity in Western Europe other than perhaps Greece.

Dr Alf may think that the Guardian has published an incredible story on Frutcose.

He is right to be angry and possibly perplexed but the EU did not make the right decision.

His understandable ire should be directed to where it really belongs at the guilty men and woman in the shadows.

The decision was made by the Alimentarius Commission a body which meets in secret and was created at the time of the Austro-Hungarian Empire to assure food quality.

During the last century, this body was apparently hijacked by the chemical and seed companies including Monsanto and now issues directives to the EU, the UK and America concerning sugar and salt content in food, vitamin supplementation, which vitamins are present or not present in food,which chemicals are used in packaging materials, the physical environment, fertilizers, till rolls and what recommended daily allowances for minerals should be in processed foods.

The Commission issues its directives (it recently met in Berlin) and these then become EU food directives.

In this country (UK), it means we now have the fattest woman in Western Europe, the 4th fattest men, 1 person in 2.5 getting cancer and the lowest life expectancy in Western Europe other than Greece.

Part of the reason for this has been the removal of vitamin B17 from the Western diet (with Vitamin B17 in sufficient quantity the incidence of cancer is practically zero which is why the Hunzas in what was once Soviet Central Asia live to be 140 years old).

Ordinary people need to take the trouble to inform themselves about the Alimentarius Commission and about:
Mechanically recovered meat
–E Numbers
Bisphenol A
–Vaccine contents and their effects
–Carcinogens in goods and the built environment
–Anti Ageing

Just relying on your GP, within the UK’s NHS is not enough, you have to do your own research and take a lot more responsibility for your health and the health of your loved ones.

Whilst this won’t stop the machinations of the Alimentarius Commission, it will give you at least some control over your fate, the rate at which you aid and your health during your allotted span on this earth.
