In May 2102 I noted that Nanny was fulminating about the dangers of sugar, and that it is as dangerous as drugs.
Well fast forward to September 2013, and we see that Nanny is again going on about sugar and calling it the "most addictive drug of all times".
Paul van der Velpen, the head of Amsterdam's health service, wants to see sugar tightly regulated.He is quoted by the Telegraph:
"Just like alcohol and tobacco, sugar is actually a drug. There is an important role for government. The use of sugar should be discouraged. And users should be made aware of the dangers.
This may seem exaggerated and far-fetched, but sugar is the most dangerous drug of the times and can still be easily acquired everywhere.
Sugar upsets that mechanism. Whoever uses sugar wants more and more, even when they are no longer hungry. Give someone eggs and he'll stop eating at any given time. Give him cookies and he eats on even though his stomach is painful.Well then!
Sugar is actually a form of addiction. It's just as hard to get rid of the urge for sweet foods as of smoking. Thereby diets only work temporarily. Addiction therapy is better.
Health insurers should have to finance addiction therapy for their obese clients. Schools would no longer be allowed to sell sweets and soft drinks. Producers of sports drinks that are bursting with sugar should be sued over misleading advertising and so on."
Can someone please tell me how to get this cupcake out of my left nostril, that has become jammed there?
