What a Great Idea.

The food nazis have 'provided funding' (but they don't tell you how much) to cary out a three year study on the nutritional value of chips.

In fact, what they are really up to is setting about sabotaging that glorious taste of cripsy hot chips with lashings of salt and tomato sauce. You can guarantee that if anything, ANYTHING, tastes good, these meddling busybodies will bugger it up on the grounds that they know best what is good for us. Did you see the fatous (ha ha ha) remark that if they succeed in their quest they'll remove 2,500 tonnes of fat from our annual diet? Hey people, haven't you heard the news? You actually NEED fat in your diet. They've denied us the pleasure of chippies cooked in beef fat and now they want to take away even the 'good healthy' fat as well.

I'm gonna go back to the bush and live on toast laden with dripping and the crunchy bits from the roasting dish for breakfast, along with bacon and eggs; cold mutton sandwiches with tomato sause and onion for lunch; and crunchy roast pork, roast spuds, roast kumara, roast pumpkin (done in lard) green peas and sweet corn for dinner followed by lashings of ice cream, whipped cream, jelly and tinned peaches. For variety we'll have a bit of roast beef and roast hogget now and again as well as the odd roast turkey and roast chook. And to look after the arteries we'll hoe into a bit of hapuka and snapper on Fridays, just to keep the Mick Doolans up the road happy.

That's what we used to live on when we led ACTIVE lives with plenty of EXERCISE.

And if I smell one of them food nazis within five miles I'll get out the 308.

Stick with the bullshit "food pyramid" and you'll be seeing the inside of a lot of hospitals yourself, anon. Feel free to come back when you can tell us how come the Inuit still exist after centuries on an all-meat-and-fat diet.

The Inuit? Who, on average, drop dead a decade earlier than their white counterparts?

"The life expectancy gap between Inuit and all Canadians is vast. While Inuit men can expect to live 62.6 years, the figure for all Canadian men is 77.0. Life expectancy of Inuit women is 71.1 compared to 82.2 years for all Canadian women. Life expectancy in Inuit communities in the late 1990's was the same as that for all Canadians around 1950."

You seem to confuse life expectancy with rates of heart disease, James. They're different things.
