Christopher Snowdon speaks on BBC World Service
Chris said; “Numerous different people have what they think is a diet that works and they get very evangelical about it. They’re insistent on pushing it upon other people so far as they can, and if possible getting the government to push it. I think when you’ve got so many people with so many different views you’re much better off allowing a thousand flowers to bloom people pick themselves an unwise diet it’ll only be them who pay the cost of that rather than taking the risk of imposing it on everybody else.”
