I’m confused

Inspiration from Oswald

That was then when milk was evil:

Kiwis would be far healthier if they made the easy switch from full-fat to trim milk, reports Emily Watt from Sunday Star Times.

Orange, yellow, blue and green – it’s a rainbow of colours in the milk aisle at the supermarket, but most New Zealanders are sticking with fat-filled blue.

Kiwis bought nearly 100 million litres of blue-top milk last year, despite nationwide health messages to cut down on saturated fat. Nutritionists say if that was trim milk, our rates of high cholesterol, blood pressure and cardiovascular disease would improve dramatically.

A litre of blue-top milk contains 24g of saturated fat, equivalent to four nougat-filled chocolate bars.

The nation’s milk-drinking habits need to change, says Otago University professor of nutrition Jim Mann. “That’s a significant way people could cut down on saturated fat intake. It’s potentially very important. And it’s an easy thing to do.”

This is now, Milk is a basic commodity and should be made available to ALL:

“Milk is a basic commodity and should be made available to all New Zealand consumers, not just those who can afford it,” Nosh director Clinton Beuvink said.

Of course Nosh neglected to tell everyone that they had to spend a minimum $25.00 on other goods in their over-priced store to avail themselves of the cheap milk deal.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
