Calls to downsize chocolate bars & fizz cans

Manufacturers are being asked to cut the size of chocolate bars, confectionery and cans of fizzy drink to tackle rising rates of obesity.

By 2012, the Food Standards Agency wants chocolate-based snacks such as Mars bars to be no bigger than 50g compared with the current 58g size.

Bars of chocolate should be no larger than 40g, a draft consultation warns.

Cans of fizzy drinks should be cut from 330ml to 250ml by 2015, the FSA recommended.

And single portions of sugar-containing still and juice drinks should also be no more than 250ml.

How about cutting the number of cigarettes in a box or maybe jacking up the prices of alcohol? #Idiots
