Jamie Oliver goes after sugar in food.

Hot on the heels of his successful effort to make British school lunches more healthy, Jamie Oliver is going after what has been called the real problem in food that fat is not: Sugar.

Pictured in hospital scrubs and solemnly exhorting us to “save our NHS”, at first glance the chef could almost have been campaigning against cuts or privatisation. But his intended target is in its way just as political; the toxic alliance of a food industry peddling obscenely calorific junk with humans who seemingly can’t stop eating it, which some fear could together overwhelm western healthcare systems.
