I have recently commented on historic and well documented poor health statistics for Hyndburn which have been reported on in the local press.
People are dying unnecessarily - or suffering chronic ill health as a result - from smoking, heavy drinking, fatty food and sugar. People are being hoodwinked into the attractiveness or cheapness of these products.
What hurts me personally is seeing parents in supermarkets with cheap fatty food whilst purchasing cigarettes and or alcohol. Moralising isn't the answer but tackling the food and drink industry is. However we have weak prime minister who is unable and unwilling to do anything about it.
