FSA scientist comes to aid of the bacon buttie
Extract from Telegraph article:
"A report by the World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) last week triggered a furore when it said the evidence was strong enough for it to recommend people stop eating any processed meats.
But Dr Andrew Wadge, the Food Standards Agency (FSA)'s chief scientist, has said the report's stark and "surprising" message not to eat bacon sandwiches could alienate consumers. Dr Wadge bolstered his assertion by admitting that he was partial to the odd bacon sandwich and added that they should remain part of a balanced diet. "I do like a bacon sandwich, in moderation," he said."
And since all overweight or obese people are sensitive to salt/suffering from fluid retention, even one bacon sandwich could cause an obese person, especially an obese child, a lot of harm, since bacon is laden with salt/sodium and the bread used in making the sandwich is also high in salt.
Overweight people would be well advised to avoid salt and salty food like bacon as much as they possibly can.- People who are not sensitive to salt, i.e. slim people, are fortunate enough to be as 'moderate' - or indeed liberal - as they like, since it makes little difference to them.
