The wages of sin — gluttony

Dalrymple is delighted to read in a paper published in a medical journal that those who consume disgusting sweet fatty mass-produced muck

are more likely than others to develop type 2 diabetes—the type that is increasing throughout the world at an alarming pace, and in some countries threatening to reverse the increase in life expectancy to which we have grown accustomed as part of the natural order of things and now think of almost as a human right.

Such diabetes, he writes,

is not only the wages of sin—gluttony—but of something that affects our everyday lives even worse, namely mass bad taste.
