You Should Ignore the Food Standards Agency – They’re Idiots

Dr Vernon Coleman MB ChB DSc FRSA

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has issued a warning about a chemical called acrylamide which, it says, may cause cancer.

But their warning is rubbish and is NOT based on scientific evidence.

Acrylamide is, says the FSA, produced when starchy foods (such as bread and potatoes) are roasted, fried or grilled for too long at high temperatures.

And so the FSA has issued a standard nanny state warning that people shouldn’t eat nicely browned toast or, presumably, the nice crispy bits you get in the bottom of a bag of chips.

But the evidence upon which the FSA has based its warning is a result of research on animals.

The idiots at the FSA have assumed that what happens in animals also happens in humans.

But this is not true.

And the FSA should know that the animal research evidence they’re using is utterly valueless.

You don’t have to just take my word for this.

Drug safety agencies around the world now ignore scientific evidence showing that drugs cause cancer and other serious health problems when given to animals – because they know that research on animals is utterly without value.

As proof I have published on this website a list of several dozen widely prescribed drugs which are known to cause serious health problems when given to animals but which are considered safe for human use.

If the FSA really wanted to cut the incidence of cancer they would warn people not to eat meat.

Meat is known to cause cancer. There’s a ton of research involving humans which proves this beyond a doubt. (See my book Food for Thought – available as an ebook on Amazon – for a list of 26 scientific papers providing proof that meat causes cancer in humans.)

But the FSA won’t dare take on the powerful meat industry.

So, they’re cowards as well as idiots.
