Public Health England Tells England To Go On a Diet

Our old friends from Public Health England (PHE) have donned their jackboots again, and issued a diktat that English people are fat bastards and that we all need to go on a diet.

PHE are calling on food sellers and manufacturers to cut calories in their products by 20% by 2024, with big businesses that fail to make progress set to be named and shamed.

PHE claim that this would slash costs to the NHS by £4.5bn over 25 years and prevent more than 35,000 premature deaths, with another £4.48bn saved in social care costs.

Dr Alison Tedstone, chief nutritionist at PHE, is quoted by the Guardian:
“We have more obese children in England than ever before – we have one in five children arriving in primary school already obese or overweight and one in three leaving primary school obese or overweight."
PHE then go on to say that we should only eat around 1,600 calories a day.

Now, as we all know, Nanny has been telling us that the calories intake should be 2,000 for women and 2,500 for men. So why the 1,600, has something changed?

Nothing has changed, PHE are deliberately lying to you because they think you are morons and can't judge your true calorie intake; as such, if they set the bar lower you might achieve their target.

As you can see, Nanny now openly admits that she is lying in order to get you to do what she wants.

By the way, if we did suddenly become a nation of super slim people that lived to a ripe old age all those costs savings from treating the obese would be more than swallowed up and exceeded by the cost of geriatric care.

Don't worry though, Nanny will doubtless enforce euthanasia in order to save costs!

In short, PHE can go an fuck itself!

  1. I don't suppose that for businesses, there's much 'shame' in not doing as you're told by a taxpayer funded busybody quango
    And that 'saving' is pennies compared to the NHS budget

  2. Politics remains in trouble due to addicted quangos telling taxpayers how to live. Disgraceful.

  3. I wish you had not mentioned euthanasia, I'm coming up to 85 and would like to make it. Do not put ideas into the thick heads of NHS England, they can make their own mistakes easily enough.
