Já não bastavam as mulheres...

... também a hipertensão «é mal tratada» em Portugal.

É uma constatação do histórico anti-tabagista-fundamentalista cardiologista Fernando de Pádua, que o DN divulga. E ficamos também a saber que estamos "no topo dos países europeus com maior taxa de acidentes vasculares cerebrais".
"In North America the black bear was seen by [Samuel] Hearne swimming for hours with widely open mouth, thus catching, like a whale, insects in the water. Even in so extreme a case as this, if the supply of insects were constant, and if better adapted competitors did not already exist in the country, I can see no difficulty in a race of bears being rendered, by natural selection, more and more aquatic in their structure and habits, with larger and larger mouths, till a creature was produced as monstrous as a whale."
