Westwood Advises: "Eat Less"

Vivienne Westwood has advice for those who cannot afford to buy organic food: eat less. The designer and campaigner made the suggestion yesterday as she dropped off a petition to Downing Street protesting against genetically modified foods.

"You've got all these processed foods, which is the main reason that people are getting fat," she said, The Independent reported. "They're not actually good for you - they don't give you strength, they give you weight. I eat vegetables and fruit. I don't eat meat; I believe meat is bad for me… But if there was a movement to produce more organic food and less of the horrible food, then organic food would obviously be a good-value price, wouldn't it? We need to change to a green economy and a green world and that is easy to do. The alternative is hell."

When a BBC Radio interviewer challenged her with the words: "Not everybody can afford to eat organic food", she retorted: "Eat less!"
