ZenTiger A steady diet of state control

The State is at it again. Folic acid is now compulsory in bread. It's to save the lives of a few children, although there is a good chance some pregnant women will not eat that much bread anyway. Making a law to force pregnant women to take folic acid would of course reek of authoritarianism, whereas this move is just typical of the nanny state mentality.

Give us this day, our daily bread, and 20 government mandated additives...will it transpire folates make people stupider and more prone to voting Labour?

Next will be Prozac.

Then we won't care.

I read somewhere that the health people reckon that the amount of folic acid they're going to add is so small that it's not worth it anyway.
