The UK is the first horse out of the gate on the latest war on…………………………SALT!!! Not to be outdone by the U.S., especially those damned uppity New Yorkers………….the UK is off and running in their effort to change the salt habits of the British people! The U.S. and Australia will not be far behind I’m sure.

Fast food crackdown on high levels of salt

COUNCIL inspectors are to investigate fast-food outlets in a crackdown on salt levels.

Twenty establishments will be chosen at random during the week-long investigation.

They will be told the results but no action will be taken. The move, by Edinburgh City Council, coincides with Salt Awareness Week, which started yesterday.

They are also promoting salt awareness in their own staff canteens.

Environment leader Councillor Robert Aldridge said: “Too much salt in our diets is dangerous to our health. It can cause high blood pressure and triple our risk of heart disease and stroke.”

Adults should consume no more than 6g of salt per day.

OK, it’s still not table salt…………………………….YET; but how long do you think it will be before they come into your home and check your salt shakers – IF you are still allowed to have them that is? As I posted last night, New York City is already seriously looking at the sodium content of food, and with their track record I’d bet they’ll be banning salt by next year!

To think that Great Britain was once a world power; that they managed to beat Adolf Hitler and the Nazi’s – with a smoking prime minister at the time no less – it is painful to watch the UK and the US try to outdo each other in this ‘who’s the biggest nanny’ race that seems to be going on.

Australia isn’t doing too bad in the nanny department either. It’s amazing to see all these once FREE nations succumbing to such Orwellian measures lately.

When is this going to stop? These public health people, globally, have lost their minds. On the one hand they are screaming about saving lives and living longer (if not forever if you really listen to them), and on the other hand theres others talking about over population. Well someone better make up their damned minds because I’m getting dizzy here already!
