Food fight

I spoke at the British Society of Lifestyle Medicine conference in September in front of a surprisingly large crowd of 800 at Spurs' ground in Tottenham. I didn't realise at the time but the Q & A was being filmed. The topic was sugar taxes and other government interventions involving diet.

I haven't watched it back but I recall it getting a bit heated when Tim Spector, who had just given a presentation telling us that everything we knew about food was wrong, insisted that governments were acting with perfect information when they interfere in the food supply.
