I see that another food has been targeted by the food police for banning.
This time the target is ham and other processed meat.
The World Cancer Research Fund has decreed that parents must stop putting such products in their childrens' lunchboxes, lest they develop a taste for smoked, salted or cured meats.
Seemingly, if you believe the doctors, eating too much ham etc over decades can raise the risk of bowel cancer.
All very well, but would they care to define exactly what "too much" actually means?
They won't, because they don't know.
Instead they are using data collected from adult health surveys (because there is no data on children) to issue a blanket "scare the parents" health warning.
Another small question, what exactly is the "risk" of getting cancer if you eat one slice of ham; eg 10%, 20%??
Issuing health alerts without providing the relevant data (such as statistical risk of getting cancer from eating one slice of ham a day) is of no use to man nor beast.
As ever, instead of scaring people by saying "don't", why not remind people of the old adage "a little of what you fancy, in moderation" does you no harm whatsoever (ie eat a varied diet)?
Here is my recipe for Baked Ham.
