image for Delia Smith "A Real Threat To Health", Says Health Expert
The Professor tucks into one of Delia's Deathburgers

Delia Smith, the well-known TV celebrity cookess and Norwich City fan, has been accused of putting the lives of millions of people at risk, and was today labelled "a real threat to people's health" by one top health expert.

The claim that Smith could be responsible for as many as 19,000 deaths per year, was made by the outspoken Professor Ramsay Gordon who says that, by recommending strange combinations of ingredients in her cooking, the Norfolk bakess is "putting lives at steak"(sic).

On her cooking show How To Cheat At Cooking recently, Smith prepared a plate of Hungarian Ghoulash and told viewers:

"There's nothing like a pinch of dogmuck to spice up your ghoulash", claiming that "it's good for the bowels."

Professor Gordon, himself a dab hand with a wok, said:

"It doesn't take an expert to work out that dogmuck can't be used as an ingredient in this type of dish."

Another of Smith's suggestions was that nettles be added to salads, and that eating uncooked red meat could be "beneficial to children's growth". She also triumphs Hamburgers and Hot Dogs which, she says, are packed with essential nutrients.

Experts have said that Smith's advice should be "taken with a large pinch of salt".
