The Wiltshire Cure for Good Health
The full lowdown on the Nitrite health scare:
....So, hotdogs and processed meats are condemned as junk food because they contain nitrates, which they don’t, while vegetables are declared health food because they’re free from the same chemicals, which they’re not.
There’s still plenty of summertime left and lots of regional hotdog specialties and BLTs left to enjoy, along with those garden vegies. With a little more science under our belts, hopefully everyone can enjoy it all with a lot less worry.
And apart from giving the health nazis fixation with trying to ban anything tasty a good kicking, this also gives the lie to the Nitrate Vulnerable Zone billion pound wastefulness here in the UK.
