Aletha Ling Personalised, implanted food tracking

If we look at this MindBullet and the chip implant MindBullet I can see a scenario where food will be labeled in such a way that it can provide realtime input to the implanted chip which can then provide recommendations and warnings to the individual based on their personalised diet plan, their consumption to date on the day, their food allergies etc. This may be a service enforced on food providers and as a choice to the individual

Wolfgang Grulke Food kills

I just read an article by Clare Wilson in which she asks: "Remember how tobacco executives used to question the link between smoking and lung cancer? It's happening all over again with junk food."
She states that Britons currently watch about 26 hours of television a week (double that of the 1960s - (lack of excercise contributing to obesity) and writes about the massive implications for the whole advertising industry if sugar, fat etc are outlawed. Think also of sports funding.
What will be left to eat if we give up fat and sugar, together with the Atkin's devil carbohydrates? I guess in the end, living is dangerous to your health!
