Scandinavia and the World
Picky Denmark

Picky Denmark

Denmark have some of the strictest food laws in the world, which is kind of pissing the rest of Europe off because it means they can't sell their stuff to Denmark.

One of the first things I noticed when I moved back to Denmark after having lived in England for a year was how quickly food went bad, so it would seem Denmark is quite picky about chemicals in the food too.

Danish meat is seen as low standard in Sweden since they don't treat their animals so good.

@Funnyface - I'll play the vague comment game. What is the "something" that stood out to you?

Australia actually has the strictest food laws in the world and we eat weird shit like: Kangaroo, Vegemite, Emu and Camel, and eat things weird like: Pies like sandwiches, Vegemite straight out of the jar (it is really really strong, so strong that it takes years to develop a Vitamin B immunity) and smothering every bit of meat with tomato sauce

I saw the video I've already learned about that but something stood out to me

@NTruths - I don't get my information from "nutjobs". I got my information on HFCS from Dr. Robert Lustig, an Endocrinoligist and Pediatrician who is also a Professor at the University of California. He did not simply state an opinion, either. He recorded a lecture on this topic that's an hour and half long, and describes in intricate detail EXACTLY what happens in your liver to metabolise HFCS as compared to ordinary sugar.

I don't care if you do or don't like that information, but it is most definitely factual. Here is the video in question: -->

He does talk about metabolic processes of sugar in general, but if you want to know SPECIFICALLY why HFCS is worse than ordinary sugar - then start viewing from about the 45 minute mark of the video.

You can laugh gaily and wave off the opinions of others all you want, but THIS is intricately detailed explanations from a Doctor of Endocrinology who has spent a portion of his life studying exactly this question. If THAT isn't good enough information for you, then nothing will be because it doesn't get any more factual than this.

This comic makes me want to fly to Europe for a week, to do nothing but sample foods and ride trains.
