Via Scoop, this press release from ACT is a satirical rage against the politically-correct Stalinist thought police who try to brainwash us into believing that insulin resistance is influenced by diet:
Air Diet Best For Diabetes, Says ACT
ACT New Zealand is delighted to be counted among the opposition parties calling for healthy eating policies following the release of a report showing New Zealand has one of the highest rates of diabetes among developed countries, says the party’s Forbidden Foods Spokeswomanperson, Heather Roy.
“Yes, even I find it difficult to resist culinary temptation,” Ms Roy sighs, lasciviously eyeing a side-dish of bean sprouts. “But we must bite the bullet (and very little else). Another recent study showed that diabetes can be reversed on a diet of 600 calories a day. While such a regime may fall short of the ideal, no-calorie diet, a law banning the consumption of more than 600 calories should be the minimum objective of all parties’ healthy eating policies.
“Failure to pass such a law will only encourage stroppy individualists in their perverse and anti-social belief that what they eat is up to them,” Ms Roy concludes.
If the Ministry of Health ever puts out an advisory warning New Zealanders not to eat shards of broken glass, the entire ACT Party would be dead by lunchtime and we’d be able to spend the millions of taxpayer dollars we waste funding this clown show on a real political party.
