Top UK health official urges against eating whole Easter egg


After a top England’s National Health Service (NHS) director warned people “not to eat the whole Easter egg in one go,” doctors hit back, saying that “life is too short” to cut back this holiday season. In a blog post, Dr Andrew Kelso, a NHS medical director, advised people to watch their waistline and show constraint when it comes to chocolate treats.”I urge people to enjoy their Easter eggs in moderation,” Kelso said. “Enjoy your sweet treats but don’t overdo it.” REDDIT USER WHO LEFT HER DRUNK HUSBAND BEHIND AT AIRPORT GETS SUPPORT FROM OTHERS: ‘HAS A PROBLEM’ Plastic eggs and candy are seen on the table, Monday, April 14, 2014, at the Runberg’s home in Longmont.
