An unhealthy diet

IT’S NO secret that, In common with much of the western world, Scotland has a problem with unhealthy eating. According to the Scottish Government, our eating habits are the second major cause, after smoking, of poor health. What we eat, and the way we eat, contributes to a number of serious illnesses, including coronary heart disease, certain types of cancer, strokes, osteoporosis and diabetes.

But food isn’t the only thing that we consume. We are also consumers of media messages. Just as we are affected by the food we eat, so we are influenced by the media messages that we absorb. If we are what we eat; if our bodies are shaped by the food we ingest, then it follows that our minds are, to some extent at least, moulded by the media messages we consume. If we accept that our physical health is dependent on a good balanced diet, then it seems only reasonable to suppose that our intellectual well-being is linked to what we read, watch and listen to.
