Two Things I Learned About Scotland This Afternoon and Immediately Wished I Hadn't
1. Scotland has one of the highest death rates from coronary heart disease in the western world. After almost a year and a half of living here and amongst Scottish cuisine, I see the direct link. Even today, for example, I sat beside someone who ate a meat pie and baked beans for lunch. I saw another person who ate a plate of fries for her lunch.
Deep-fried pizza, fish and chips, tablet, crisps, deep-fried pies and sausages, more meat than you can shake a stick at, and chocolate - just your average punters daily diet!
2. Scotland has the highest rate of Multiple Sclerosis in the world. Holy shit, get me outta here!
