The One Show
I made a brief appearance on The One Show on Tuesday evening from Brighton promenade. You can watch it here - it's the first item. The presenter says on film that she keenly supports a sugar tax and that certainly comes through in the programme.
It's worth watching the discussion in the studio afterwards to see an actor claiming that eight year old children today have eaten more sugar than people would eat in their whole lives 100 years ago. How can any sentient being believe such a thing? It shows how effective Action on Sugar's propaganda has been. As regular readers will know, sugar consumption is lower today than it was at the start of the twentieth century.
I also wrote a post for Spectator Health discussing Jamie Oliver's appearance before the health select committee. Do have a read.
