Public Health England’s advice is a recipe for diabesity – Zoë Harcombe Ph.D

Last month (February 2019) Ivor Cummins posted a video recording of Zoë Harcombe’s  address to the UK Parliament in the House of Commons on the bad science behind the Food Guidelines.

She explains how the Dietary Guidelines set in the USA in 1977…

…and in the UK in 1983 have resulted in the demonization of dietary fat and that there was no evidence then and there is no evidence now that dietary fat causes heart disease. Since the guidelines were set, 37 results from 7 independent reviews found no evidence.

She goes on to highlight that in Public Health England’s “Eat Well Guide” 65% of the recommended calories are carbohydrate, making the guideline diet deficient in Retinol, Vitamin D, Vitamin E and Calcium and a recipe for diabesity.

She questions how Public Health England can allow many of the members of the panel who set the Eat Well Guide could be chosen from companies such as McDonalds, Mars, Tate & Lyle, Greggs, Kelloggs and Coca Cola to name just a few.

Zoë points out that Public Health England’s advice is a recipe for diabesity as diabetes is the inability to handle carbohydrates.

She urges the Government “Don’t allow the fake food industry to set our guidelines, it’s like putting Dracula in charge of a blood bank!”

She received resounding applause!

I sincerely hope that at least some of those who were clapping actually take this information on board.
