Dutch officials seize ham sandwiches from British drivers

quote [ Officials wearing high-visibility jackets are shown explaining to startled car and lorry drivers at the Hook of Holland ferry terminal that since Brexit, ?you are no longer allowed to bring certain foods to Europe, like meat, fruit, vegetables, fish, that kind of stuff.?

To a bemused driver with several sandwiches wrapped in tin foil who asked if he could maybe surrender the meat and keep just the bread, one customs officer replied: ?No, everything will be confiscated. Welcome to Brexit, sir, I?m sorry.? ]

Welcome to Brexit, Sir! Bahahahahaha!!
if only we could come up with a similar way to hamper the rabid Q and Trump fanbois

A Scary Amount of Nutrition Science Has Deep Ties to The Food Industry, Study Reveals

quote [ The food industry has their fingers all over our nutrition research. According to a new analysis, one out of every eight leading, peer-reviewed studies on nutrition is tied to business.

Even worse, this conflict of interest, although acknowledged explicitly within the scientific journals, tends to produce results that favour business, and potentially with misleading consequences.

"Where the food industry is involved, research findings are nearly six times more likely to be favourable to their interests than when there is no food industry involvement." ]
