Indeed Bernard though I was not born until 1951. I think the general fitness was due to activity rather than the lesser consumption of animal fats and sugars. There were far less cars and sedentary employment,folk walked and cycled and were far more active than today. Diet and inactivity is the only cause of obesity and I have doubts as to whether the 5-7 years of lesser fat consumption had significant impact on the onset of cardiovascular disease, hypertension and diabetes.Hello there, tell you what! people were a damn sight fitter in those days than they are now!!2oz of butter or marg, dripping or lard on your morning toast , I was nine when the war started and "Yes I Remember it Well" Bernard
