Really? Is there not a food group that one is supposed to abstain from to demonstrate some higher plane of existence. Cleanse and detox seems to be the raison d’etre of food.

The latest savoy in the anti-sugar crusade is the evil of the office cake.

UK Professor Nigel Hunt of the Royal College of Surgeons said employees should “combat cake culture” in 2017 because it’s making workers too fat and rotting their teeth.

“While these sweet treats might be well meaning, they are also contributing to the current obesity epidemic and poor oral health,” he told the BBC.

“We need a culture change in offices and other workplaces that encourages healthy eating and helps workers avoid caving in to sweet temptations such as cakes, sweets and biscuits.”


How much cake is consumed in the office?  No really.  Birthday Paradox would indicate there would be duplicate birthdays let alone birthdays falling in the same week.  We all know that PTB are cheapskates and in such circumstances one cake will suffice for many.

It is up to an individual whether or not they will indulge in cake.   Take personal responsibility.  Whatever happened to the food pyramid.  Moderation people. It is your responsibility.
