canteen & millennium

Quotations:

Sharman Stone: [sucrose; lactose; maltose; fructose; canteen] Sucrose is a little different to tobacco, because if we're talking about sugars, we've got lactose, maltose, sucrose, fructose, we'd have to make sure  the commercial, those who are going to make a fortune out of this don't simply slip in the fruit juice fructose and say what's your problem, it's not sucrose, you know, it's a purely nature sugars. So, we know for a fact when you raise the price of something you can curb  consumption. That happened with tobacco, we know it would happen with alcohol. So, we've got to be careful about this that we don't allow it to be played with like the traffic light system. Remember we had the problem the traffic lights where people had good fats and bad fats all mixed up and no one understood what fats really were, in terms of their health benefits and the total problems of obesity. But I think it deserves a very close look, salt as well as sugar, sucrose, look at where it's added where there's no nutritional benefit in a product food, look at our school canteens where they feed kids ...

Thomas Buttel: [millennium] My question is to Germaine. The 23rd of April will be the 400th anniversary of the death of William Shakespeare. He's referred as the man of the millennium, but that was a last millennium, how relevant do you think he is in this millennium.
