Food and Alcohol Related Heart Attacks

This great nugget comes from one of our regular blog readers and comment makers, June, who runs the website http://www.travelscribbles.com

For those of you who watch what you eat and drink on the cruise, here's the final word on nutrition and health when you’re at sea. Apparently it all depends on your nationality! It's not such good news if you are American.

1. The Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

2. The Mexicans eat a lot of fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

3. The Chinese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

4. The Italians drink a lot of red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

5. The Germans drink a lot of beers and eat lots of sausages and fats and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

CONCLUSION

Eat and drink what you like - it's being American that is apparently what kills you.
