If this blog included cartoons, the one illustrating this post would show a small mouse-like dietitian held in the fearsome claws of a vast and grinning fat cat wearing a suit covered in brand names such as Coca-Cola, Mars, Nestlé, Unilever Foods and WK Kellogg Institute.
The dietician’s speech bubble would read: ‘It’s OK I’ve got it under control.’ It would be captioned: ‘The delusion of the dietitians’.

Doctors take on prevention is a bit like St Augustine’s take on sex, (he was a 4th century father of the Christian Church), who famously used to pray: “Lord, make me chaste—but not yet.” So while they all agree that prevention is a jolly good idea, when it comes to actually taking it as seriously as drugs and properly funding research, policies and education, the “not yet” option pops up. We can’t afford their self-indulgence any more.
