Healthcare and Food

I'm saddened by many of the comments  criticising Jamie for highlighting major public health issues.

The fact is that many millions of people in Western countries (both old and new world) are killing themselves out of ignorance, laziness, or a combination of both.

It wouldn't bother me so much, after all the planet is somewhat overpopulated as it is, but people appear to be absolutely unwilling to take responsibility for their own choices. You may note that "pizza for breakfast is what freedom is all about...", but don't expect others (this applies to countries with a universal government-funded health service, obviously!) to pick up the healthcare tab!
