Nanny Offers Immortality

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.

For why?

Other lifestyle factors, such as not smoking or drinking excessively, may have accounted for the drop in mortality, not just fruit and veg consumption.

More to the point, as Prof Tom Sanders, at the School of Medicine, King's College London, said it was "already known" that people who said they ate lots of fruit and vegetables were health conscious, educated and better-off. He is quoted by the BBC:
"You cannot extrapolate from this kind of information to make sensible pronouncements about what people should eat."
In other words the conclusions are bollocks!

    Not to mention the fact that 7 items of fruit & veg would mean that you exceed Nanny's ridiculous new sugar limits.

  2. I wouldn't have the time to eat all that...

    Using Nanny's logic; the last time I ate seven servings of fruit and veg it rained therefore, if I eat seven portions a day, I will be flooded out.

    Free advice again.....Every thing in moderation and you won't go far wrong.

    '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.' Before I read this blog my partner and I were laughing at this until tears rolled down our faces - 'less likely to die' indeed. Nanny says eat your greens or you will die - just who do they think they are and just how dumb do they think we are. As my partner said you could get run over by a bus as you rush around town looking for a toilet because you've eaten the ten portions they say we 'should' be eating. And just what exactly is a bloody PORTION?

    I eat many more times the suggested number of fruit and veg per day and I can't stop farting!!
