Let them eat cake
But what is in cake nowadays? I bought this muffin at a school function but it was so awful I eventually threw it away. It must have been packet mix and I am sure the cook followed the proper directions, but the result is not food, it is a colourful handful of chemical fluff that the stomach rebels against.
Today I read that John Yudkin, the man who warned us about the effects of sugar in the 1970s (see his bookPure, White and Deadly) was hounded and ostracized by the powerful food industry who were making a packet from low-fat high-sugar foods.
