The environment inside our skins, the obesity epidemic and the food industry | Letters

Claude Bernard stressed the importance of people’s internal environment over a century ago, says Gwen Parr , so the food industry should be held to account. Plus Lizzie Hill suggests that perhaps a zero-tolerance approach to peddlers of excess sugar should be adopted The obesity epidemic ( Report , 11 October), like lung cancer, has a single chief cause which can be found by following the money. The profit from this epidemic can be found in the pockets of the food industry. We now accept that polluters pay for polluting the environment outside our skins, but we have another equally important environment inside our skins. Over 100 years ago Claude Bernard introduced this idea and said: “The stability of the internal environment is the condition for the free and independent life.” Much research since Bernard’s time has verified the importance of the internal environment and hence the importance of what goes into it. 12-10-17
