Scurvy returns among UK children with diets'worse than in the war’ ...

With the advent of junk food as well as highly processed microwave food, the corporate world is slowing enticing huge numbers of people into highly dangerous eating / diet practices. 

 Wartime diseases are returning to Britain because some children are living on junk food diets that are worse for them than rationing was 70 years ago, officials have claimed. 

Cases of scurvy and rickets have been on the rise in parts of the UK where some parents rely on takeaways and microwave meals to feed the family, health staff warned. 
Dietitians in the Rhondda Valley, South Wales, said they were seeing an increase in both diseases, which were thought to have been consigned to history. 
A new report seen by The Daily Telegraph suggests that since the start of the credit crisis, consumption of fruit and vegetables has fallen in the UK at a faster rate than in western Europe as a whole, eastern Europe and the US. 
On average, each person in Britain is eating 8lb 13oz (4kg) less fruit and vegetables a year than in 2007, a drop of 3 per cent. 
Dr Mark Temple, of the British Medical Association’s public health committee, said: “Food standards in the UK are worse now than they were during the rationing of the (Second Word) War.”

Just wait until Cameron reinstates prison hulks floating on the Thames. We are, my friend, in decline. The sooner we come to accept that the sooner we can deal with growing problems such as inequality and universality.
