Scottish people unhealthy11th June 2010
A new study has suggested that unhealthy living is almost universal in Scotland, with virtually everyone in the country putting themselves at risk.
Researchers from Glasgow University analysed data from 6,574 people who took part in the 2003 Scottish Health Survey and identified five factors which contributed most to disease in richer countries - smoking, drinking, poor diet, physical inactivity and obesity. The report found that 97% of Scots had at least one of the risk factors and 55% of the population had three or more, while 20% had four or all five.
