The cause of most deaths

After an exhaustive review of the research literature, here's the final word on nutrition and health:

1. Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.
2. Mexicans eat a lot of fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.
3. Chinese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.
4. Italians drink excessive amounts of red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.
5. Germans drink beer and eat lots of sausages and fats and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.
6. The French eat foie-gras, full fat cheese and drink red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.

Conclusion: Eat and drink what you like.

Speaking English is apparently what kills you.

  5. Are the French tasty, has this been verified?

    I'm rather partial to pate, which I suppose isn't quite the same as eating French people.

    One step at a time.

  6. Yeah, I'm rather partial to pate too, Caz. Unfortunately hubby despises any thing offal, so don't often get to partake of pate.
    Or lambs fry. Or giblets.
    Tell me no fiblets! Where are the giblets?
    Mum does make a yummy rissoto with giblets.
    It's to die for..
