    Dutch Farmers Healthier Than Most

    Dutch farmers healthier than most


    Dutch farmers are less likely to suffer from depression, bronchial and cardio-vascular diseases, concludes a health service research survey.

    THE NETHERLANDS – Dutch farmers are on average much healthier than the rest of the population, says the Netherlands Institute for Health Services Research.

    A survey of 100 general practitioners shows farmers are 40 percent less likely to suffer from psychological problems such as depression, anxiety and stress.

    The chance of farmers suffering from bronchial complaints is 30 percent less than among other Dutch people. They are also prescribed less medication for cardio-vascular diseases.

    The institute said the marked differences between farmers and the rest of the population cannot be explained simply by arguing that most of them run a one-man business and are less likely to have time to visit their general practitioners.

    The institute added further research will need to be conducted to find out why farmers seem to stay healthier.

    I would be willing to bet that rural living and honest work play a large part in their improved health.

    Maybe all the raw milk they're drinking. Pasteurization is taking away all the goodness of milk which has traditionally boosted Northern peoples.

    I was in North West Netherlands 3 years ago visiting together with some german friends. The NW Dutch are the healthyest looking people I have ever seen, and are ever they tall. 185-188 cm was the average height for a guy, Women at 180-182 were all over and some men were as tall as 205 (6' 10"). The older men, in their 50s 60s were shorter.
    I wonder if there is something to the raw milk idea, I have not had raw milk in years,

    NW Netherlands is the most Nordic part of the country, and indeed continental Europe outside of Scandinavia. Hence they must be the most aesthetically impressive to the eye.
