According to a Scottish dietician, 60% of British hospital patients, and half of those in old-age homes, are underfed and suffering from malnutrition.

Just think about that for a moment. The very institutions Britons trust to care for their health when they are ill or elderly are systematically starving them. Which of course means that they stay sick or continue to deteriorate.

All I can say is that I'm glad I don't live in Britain.
