My comments:
Americans are rather individual and trusting.
Lobbying is very strong and developed eg rifles (they finance politicians' campaigns)
However, when they stand up and count themselves
they go forward and don't stop.

In France, people are more suspicious.
Lobbying is as strong (see chemists, farmers, oil companies...).
Regarding GMOs, the French reacted quickly
(they had to fight European leaders)
but this doesn't prevent industrials and Europe to fight back
and impose their views when we are not vigilant.

Re: All about food

Message  MurielB le Dim 7 Juin - 19:01

Hi Gérard, everyone
I would not say that it is food everywhere which is fueling obesity. It is clear that it is what is "in" the food(manufacturers artificial chemicals) which is causing the great expansion of the obesity
I agree with these words and I think it would be clearer to have food labels.  


http://www.nhs.uk/change4life/Pages/food-labels.aspx

Some food labels use red, amber and green colour coding which makes it easier to choose food that is lower in total fat, saturated fat, and sugar and salt. Choose more ’greens’ and ’ambers’ and fewer 'reds'.

Re: All about food

Message  MurielB le Mar 3 Mai - 18:35

Hi Nick, Guilaine, Katy,everyone
I have just come across a very interesting article written by Jess Stauffenberg in the Independent about Britons'new favourite foods and how their eating habits have changed

  • There is a drop in the popularity of tinned and canned food (freezer revolution)
  • ready meals and convenience meat products have gone up fivefold
  • People no longer choose white ready sliced bread but Brown and wholemeal instead
  • Pizza and pasta have become very popular now and one may Wonder if it is an Americanisation or a true Italianisation of the British diet
  • Today's generation are more squeamish about eating liver (or any offal) and prefer chicken breast slices
  • seafood and salmon have captured British taste
  • They drink less tea and more coffee
  • British love of chips has remained unchanged (It is no longer takeaway kind wrapped in newspaper but rather oven chips bought at the supermarket)
  • whole fruit and fresh fruit juice sale is increasing

English food might be now healthier but is it a shame that its tradition has changed isn't ?


British food has traditionally been based on beef, lamb, pork, chicken and fish and generally served with potatoes and one other vegetable

Why is it that its most popular dish is now made with "curry" ?

Hi everyone !
It is true that Britain is losing its reputation as Europe's culinary laughing stock. Fish and chips, baked beans and pudding are no longer the only food served in British restaurants

https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2016/feb/18/goodbye-fish-chips-national-food-survey-changing-trends-british-dining

“Shoppers are more plugged in to where their food comes from than ever before, the internet has brought quality produce to our doorsteps at the click of a button, pop-up restaurants are showcasing the latest trends and exciting global cuisines are now as common as fish and chips.
