Fast food should be banned from buses and trains, as part of efforts to “nudge” the public out of round-the-clock snacking, obesity experts say.
The call for radical restrictions, in an attempt to reset social norms, came amid warnings that “guzzling on the go” is fuelling Britain’s weight problem.
Experts at the world’s largest obesity conference urged politicians to make sweeping changes to limit the availability of junk food on public transport.
We’re moving smartly past second hand obesity here and into third hand:
Professor Jason Halford, from the European Association of Obesity, urged British politicians to back a ban, saying it would help shift people away from a culture of endless snacking.
He said other cities should follow Manchester’s Metrolink tram system, which already has such restrictions. Other obesity experts said passengers would be grateful to be saved either from tempting aromas – or the “nauseating” smell of junk foods late at night.
My scientific analysis here is that these people aren’t getting laid enough. People with even adequate sex lives just would not fuss so.
