Jamie Oliver stands against the dangerous deal between the EU and the U.S!

Lowering British food standards to allow American food imports into the UK, the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) deal could undo 'decades of work' by getting round bans imposed by the EU on putting growth hormones and pesticides in meat. Indeed, the restrictions protecting us against substances such as pigs' growth hormones and chicken feed with arsenic, do not exist in America.

'We don't have hormones in our meat, that's banned. But not over there. We don't have hundreds of poisons and pesticides that have been proven to be carcinogenic. They do. Their laws, their set-up, their safety regulations are nowhere near ours.'
