GeneralYou have to be kidding me, Holland, healthiest place to eat!??!?!! [modified] PinmemberErudite_Eric17-Jan-14 1:28 
The Netherlands took the top spot because it has comparatively low food prices, low diabetes levels and better nutritional diversity than its European rivals[^]
 
Is this the same Holland I know?
 
The food pricess are low because the food is cheap. Period. And the only reasn they have low diabetes and heart attack incidence, despite the beer they drink, fat they eat, and fags they smoke, is because they cycle everywhere, from a young age, all year. Even in winter.
 

try doing 5 miles to work in the morning on a bike in - 10 C. Every morning, al winter. I know, I have done it. A mate in Maastrict described a cycle to work, of many miles, in - 22C one year.
 
Seriously, the Dutch are nuts about cyclcing. I have seen more kids on one bike than I have in most cars: https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=dutch+family+bike&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=hRPZUoXrCozfqAHQ04Eg&sqi=2&ved=0CAcQ_AUoAQ&biw=1525&bih=633[^] Smile | :)
 

Oh, and please note, the most 'unsustainable' countries have the best scores. Says something about so called 'sustainable' 'back to nature' farming doesn't it.
