Does the Jamie Oliver approach work?
The Jamie Oliver approach will not work in tackling public health problems like obesity and smoking, the health secretary says. What approach does work?
Andrew Lansley told the British Medical Association conference in Brighton there must be an evidence-based approach to dealing with public health, with people taking responsibility for themselves.
"If we are constantly lecturing people and trying to tell them what to do, we will actually find that we undermine and are counterproductive in the results that we achieve," said the health secretary.
Is the lecturing approach counterproductive? Do people need to be told what to eat? What makes you take the healthy approach?
