Controlling Diet

Western governments restrict the distribution of drugs and chemicals that potentially deleterious to health. It seems to me then, they should not be timid about restricting components of food that cause diabetes, obesity or cardiac disease, e.g. salt, sugar and transfats. When you have a public health system, people don’t have the right to make themselves deliberately sick, since the public gets stuck with the bill for patching them up.
