Anti-bacon message may backfireNovember 14th, 2007 - 8:30 am ICT by admin
The scientist said that the report’s stark and “surprising” message not to eat bacon sandwiches could alienate consumers.
He admitted to liking bacon sandwiches himself, and insisted that it should remain part of a balanced diet.
“I do like a bacon sandwich, in moderation,” the Telegraph quoted him as saying.
Dr Wadge said that he would investigate the “relative risks” associated with bacon.
He, however, said: “The real danger is we can lose the interest and the trust of the consumer. I suspect that most people will simply ignore these messages, which is a shame because there are relatively easy steps we can take to improve our diet and reduce risks of disease.” (ANI)
