Here's to the hair in your haggis

5.2 million live in Scotland.  Diabetes has come to Scotland the last few years, a new disease to the highlands, this disease of choice is sweeping away kidneys, eyes, limbs, lives.  The "modern", that's what's ailing'em.  They no longer roam the hills and eat vegetables and coarse grains, nope, it's soft drinks and meat, white bread and chips, and a car.  Diabetes is costing their health plan hundreds of millions now every year.

Recently it was said for a fraction of that they could train and pay 40,000 physical therapist and dietitians, one for every 130 people and cure the population.  It would be cheaper and raise the quality of life.  Will they?
