And clearly Boots sandwiches are much, much safer than the others - much the lowest salt and much the most accurate, honest labelling of what the sandwich is made of and the nutritional information.
And clearly some sandwiches are quite likely to give you food poisoning! - See the following link:
The programme was very well presented by Channel 4 News presenter Alex Thomson, but was badly let down by some of the 'experts' who featured in it. - Professor Tom Saunders perpetuated the canard that calories and fat and sugar are the causes of obesity. - No, they're not, Tom! - I am constantly amazed at how this guy fails to grasp the truth about obesity. Salt sensitivity and the fluid retention, etc that accompanies it are what mainly cause obesity. (People who are not sensitive to salt do not become obese, even if they overeat and take little exercise.)
And although we were correctly informed that salt intake contributes to stroke, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes and heart disease, Professor Graham MacGregor failed yet again to tell the millions watching the programme about obesity and the salt connection, and about how salt sensitivity comes about...)o: - He should have been telling - and indeed stressing - that salt reduction is the safe, effective, healthy way to lose weight.
And none of the experts mentioned the connection between high cholesterol and salt sensitivity - that reducing salt intake rapidly reduces high cholesterol levels.
Well I hope that if you watched the programme it put you off buying sandwiches from a shop, unless that shop is Boots. But as the presenter said at the end, it's best to make your own sandwiches...(o:
