I’m not wrong, am I? Danish fat tax is butterly crazy.

Monday, October 3rd, 2011

It’s not fat that is the enemy alone, surely? Of course, unsaturated fat is not great for the arteries (although if the Daily Mail is to be believed, even that changes with the wind) but it’s sugar, it’s salt… well, let’s be simultaneously less and more specific… it’s processed food that is the problem.

Everything in moderation, you’d think, including the ‘processing’ of our foods from cheap gunk into ‘added value’ products that can still be 2-for-1’d at enormous profit. Or identify trans-fats as the enemy, as was attempted in Scotland. (It failed because of a bit of local politicking, disappointingly, but it was a truly stellar move.) Keep yer paws off my personal (moderately processed and unsalted) butter mountain, basically.

That’s where our government should be looking to act, not following the Danes, and it should be dealing with the problem at source, not hitting the pockets of the poor people who the education system ‘forgot’ to teach how to cook.
