The hysteria from the ban soft drinks brigade

Stuff reports:

Sugar needs to be looked at in the same way as alcohol and tobacco if our health system is to cope in the future, health researchers say.

These researchers want sugary drinks banned, so presumably they also want alcohol banned. Won’t NZ be a fun place when they are in charge!

He said it might seem odd now to say sugar was on par with alcohol or tobacco but in 10 years’ time, there would need to be government legislation in place or the health system wouldn’t be able to cope with the rising obesity, diabetes and tooth decay.

Cue the hysterical claim that the health system will fail if we don’t do what they say.

The symposium is being held by Fizz, a group of researchers and public health doctors who want an end to the sale of sugary drinks

Which tells you all you need to know about them.

Once they’ve got soft drinks banned, will easter eggs be next?
