The EU Talks Shite



Oh dear, instead of focusing on resolving the self inflicted Euro crisis, our chums in the EU are focusing their gimlet gaze on other matters.

Prunes!

Contrary to popular belief that prunes are most efficacious for the bowels, Nanny's chums in the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) have decreed that there is "insufficient" evidence of a link between prunes and normal bowel function after looking at three studies of prune consumption.

Thus, the labelling etc of prunes and prune products will not be allowed to make any claims wrt bowel matters.

Sir Graham Watson MEP is far from impressed, and hopes to get to the bottom of the matter by challenging the Commissioner responsible for health and consumer policy, John Dalli, to a prune-eating contest.

  1. Who needs these EU fuckers to tell us what makes us crap?

    Last time I was out on a bender the local kebab was shut down, so I had fuck all to soak up the alcohol.

    When I gets home all that's in the cupboard is prunes, so I necked the lot.

    Next day I was shitting over six hedges.

    Know what I mean.

    And frankly, it wouldn't make any difference if the data did show the laxative effect of prunes. This is because under EC Regulation 1924/2006, on nutrition and health claims legislation, EC Directive 2000/13/EC on food labelling and EU medicines legislation, (pause for breath!), laxation / regularity claims are considered as medical benefits and banned from use with foods. The only way to claim such an effect is to file for a marketing authorisation for prunes as a medicinal product. Nanny must protect her minions from being exploited by the corporates!
