A “fry-up” pie should be banned from a hospital canteen, says a food expert.
The £1.50 “heart attack on a plate” is crammed with bacon, sausage, black pudding and beans, with an egg on top.
It is being sold at Ninewells Hospital in Dundee, where doctors fight to save stroke and heart attack victims.
Prof Mike Lean, former government adviser, and chair of human nutrition at Glasgow University, said it was a “shocking” example of a meal, adding: “It should never be anywhere near a hospital. It is laden with fat, salt and without a vegetable in sight. There should be strict guidelines for all food sold in hospitals.”
Don’t we? Haven’t we had the proof that it’s not fat just recently?
Or does medicine work like the other sciences, we’ve got to wait for the generation with the wrong beliefs to die off, for it to advance funeral by funeral?
