Scottish Health

[Picture of sign for Maw Broon's cookbook]THE BROONS ARE VERY MUCH PART OF THE SCOTTISH IDENTITY, BUT SO IS HEART DISEASE.

I was amazed to see that someone has written a cookbook using the fictional cartoon character of Ma Broon.

The sign advertising the fact provided more amazement — just look at the heart-stopping contents of Ma’s frying pan!  [Click on the picture to enlarge].

If that is what we Scots are supposed to eat — if that is our traditional country cooking straight from the But’n’Ben — then no wonder we are so notoriously unhealthy!

Things are getting worse when we can celebrate such a poor diet.  Things are getting even worse when we need a cook book to tell us how to cook high fat high cholesterol heart-clogging dishes!
