This time they are ranting about the amount of salt put into cheese.
Seemingly the most salty cheese is roquefort.
Cash keep prattling on that salt intake should be less than 6g a day.
The amount of salt intake that is "safe" depends on the age, health, size, fluid intake and sweat of an individual.
Cash chairman Prof Graham MacGregor is quoted by the BBC:
"Even small reductions will have large health benefits. For every one gram reduction in population salt intake we can prevent 12,000 heart attacks, stroke and heart failure, half of which would have been fatal.Piss off!
The Department of Health must now stop its delaying tactics and set new much lower targets for cheese manufacturers, and make sure they achieve them. The cheese industry must comply if we are to save the maximum number of lives."
I like strong salty cheese, it is not Nanny's place to dictate to me what type of cheese I can eat.
What is it with these single issue groups that makes them think that they have the right to dictate to us what we may or may not drink, eat, smoke or imbibe?
Dr Judith Bryans, director of the Dairy Council, notes that Cash is using dodgy research to justify its own warped philosophy:
"The Cash survey is mixing up the effect of cheese on health with the effect of salt on health.Well said!
Cheese provides a wide range of nutrients including protein, vitamins and important minerals such as calcium.
Salt is an integral part of the cheese-making process. It is not added for taste or flavour but for safety and technical reasons.
Cheese manufacturers have worked very hard to reduce salt levels in their products and worked constructively and positively with government agencies to do this whilst producing products which are nutritious, safe and acceptable to the consumer."
