‘Eat your Greens, Keane’: health experts fight back

Crikey readers weigh in on the big issues of the day.

Di Natale v Keane on alcohol wowsers

Greens Senator Richard Di Natale writes: Re. “Dear preventative health wowsers: stop taking the piss” (yesterday). I usually have a lot of time for Bernard Keane’s analysis. His is a voice of sanity in an otherwise dull, predictable and partisan public debate. But his critique on Monday of what he calls “preventative health wowsers” was way off the mark. It needs a response, not just because of this one article, but because vested interests and ideologues use many of the same facile arguments and too often are left unchallenged.
