French term or phrase: s'appliquer à l'entrecôte
"Je suis sur qu'ils seront nombreux à admettre que les thèmes de santé publique méritent bien une réflexion sur le sujet. Le principe de précaution ne doit pas uniquement ***s'appliquer à l'entrecôte***."

Vu le contexte, je suppose qu'il s'agit d'une expression, mais je ne l'ai trouvée nul part. Quel en serait le correspondant anglais?

La citation fait partie d'un texte sur les jeux vidéo.

Merci beaucoup.

Explanation:
A little cultural adaptation si je peux me la permettre...

I don't think it's an expression.

I'm guessing the point is to apply "le principe de précaution" to cultural objects (violent video games here), whereas now it applies to public health issues : la vache folle/beef and prime-rib here.

It would in fact remain a question of public health, according to the author. One assumes their view is that these games are dangerous, as dangerous as mad-cow disease, yet this principle does not extend to children and their \"behavioral health\" as it were.

  -> I may be going out on a limb here without more context. But le pricipe de précaution is a popular notion in French polotics today.
