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.

"Well, we are from different countrys, and what you say may be true in USA. What I have lerned from my university studies fits well in with the food-revolution that I can see happening around me."

Subtle. Nice. But no, I still don't buy it. People like simple. They don't want complicated. Neutrition is complicated, so they simplify it into "no glutin" even though it's only a propblem for less than one percent of the population or "no salt" even though it's only a problem if you have high blood pressure or "only organic" even though it's no healthier than anything else or "no carbs" or "paleo" or "macro" even though they're just stupid.

Also, unless university education for all Swedes is about neutririon, I highly doubt your experience is generalizable to Swedes in general.

Food for the masses is just a shit (in every country, I suppose...)

On the other hand, Danish pigs and Danish pork were hot topics in Sweden during the EU elections, because the Danish standards are lower than the Swedish. With that said, Swedish pigs are treated better... but, you have to give it to the Danes, they buy a lot of organic food! More than we do.

What the hell are you on about now? And you have resorted to name calling? Fine, you are not worth my time.

"There are other factors even here, of course, but most people are pretty up to date on what science have found concerning health in general, and food is one of the hotter topics. "

In my experience, they THINK they are. What they're really up to date on is what the hype SAYS about health in general.

"Maybe. :)"

Maybe. :)

"The fact that "health" is a factor IS a cultural factor. And I say "health" in quotes because, often, what's claimed to be a health-based decision has nothing at all to do with science".

In Scandinavia it is very much a science based thing, but you may be right that this may not be the case in other cultures.

Hey! I'll have you know that I've stopped getting food poisoning every time I go to China now! It's only every other trip now! >.>
