How long until there is a milk tax!

The Telegraph reports:

People should halve the amount of dairy foods they eat, the Government’s dietary adviser has said in a radical move to cut .

Public Health England (PHE) says men should have only 200 calories of dairy per day while women should have just 160cal, meaning that just one large latte coffee could put a woman over her recommended daily limit.

We need a milk tax!! People must be forced to drink less milk as it has calories in it!

The move was heavily criticised by nutritionists, MPs and the dairy industry, who accused PHE of putting public health at risk with its “baffling” advice.

They say the new guidance does not provide for enough calcium or iodine in people’s diet, essential for healthy bones and brain development.

Minor issue. At least they’ll be skinny!
