Some­thing to chew over

East Kilbride News - - SPOTLIGHT -

Dear Edi­tor,

In re­sponse to your fea­ture on the Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment’s pro­pos­als to im­prove health­ier eat­ing and cut down Scot­land’s obe­sity rate (Are meals too big?, Novem­ber 8).

I won­der if, in years to come and on the back of these plans go­ing through, peo­ple will view this change in leg­is­la­tion in the same way as some­thing like the ban on smok­ing in pubs, clubs, etc?

Can­cer, heart dis­ease and di­a­betes are se­ri­ous health con­di­tions. They im­pact lives and cost a lot for our NHS to treat. An ar­gu­ment of state in­ter­fer­ence could be put for­ward but are we just go­ing to, lit­er­ally, sit back and do noth­ing about this is­sue? A Smith, via email
