Damned if you do, damned if you don’t

It’s always fun when two facets of politically correct nannying come into conflict with each other. And the best laugh I had all week came when I read that dentists were complaining that making children eat “five-a-day” (which is a made-up guideline anyway, just like the alcohol guidelines) was leading to an explosion in childhood tooth decay. Sugar is bad for you. Fruit is full of sugar. Doh! Looks like we’ll just have to force feed the kiddies sprouts and turnips.

  2. Erm, nothing new there, methinks. I remember years ago when smoothies were first breaking into the premium drinks market that dentists were warning people about them.

    Best laugh of the week? Surely, that's the last days of the Pub(lican) article?
