In The Sunday Times I interview Arthur de Vany, the man behind the new, thin, sunflower-like, me. That's Arthur on the left, looking like Superman's fitter grandad. I also review Tom Vanderbilt's book Traffic.
The articles are connected. Both involve the overthrow of a paradigm. De Vany says our carbohydrates good fat bad nutritional orthodoxy is entirely wrong; Vanderbilt says our traffic safety systems don't work - streets and cars should be more dangerous, not safer.
