I see that despite the fact that Nanny's 5 a day propaganda has been shown to be bollocks, Nanny's chums from University College London have conducted a study that claims to show that we will live longer if we ate 7 portions of fruit and veg a day.
Oddly enough, Nanny herself insists that 5 a day is still adequate.
The study of 65,226 men and women indicated the more fruit and vegetables people ate, the less likely they were to die - at any given age.
Read that again, in effect Nanny's chums are saying if you eat 7 a day you won't die!
Shurely shome mishtake!
Irrespective of that rather ludicrous claim, the research itself appears to be massively flawed.
Other lifestyle factors, such as not smoking or drinking excessively, may have accounted for the drop in mortality, not just fruit and veg consumption.
"You cannot extrapolate from this kind of information to make sensible pronouncements about what people should eat."In other words the conclusions are bollocks!
