British Doctors: “Ban the Selling of Junk Food at Hospitals!”


One might think that places promoting people’s health of course wouldn’t have junk food in every corner. But this is not the case in Britain, nor in most places of the world.

Representatives of Britain’s doctors are now coming together to change this, urging bans on junk food on hospital premises.

The Guardian: Doctors Call for Junk Food Ban on NHS Premises

Dr. Aseem Malhotra states:

“It is appalling to observe on ward rounds patients, some of whom are not fully mobile, gorging on crisps, confectionery and sugary drinks – the very food items that may have contributed to their admissions in the first place.”

There’s clearly something wrong with hospitals actively encouraging something that harms their patients. How long do you think it takes before the ban is implemented?
