  1. Excellent article, save for the fact that references to ‘the Precautionary Principle’ were not made. The Precautionary Principle is caution elevated to the status of a Divine Edict. It makes about as much sense as infanticide for preventing childhood diseases.

  2. “Standards of nutrition have improved (with the unfortunate negative consequence of rising levels of obesity)”

    I don’t get the connection. In fact, I don’t even know what “standards of nutrition” means.
