TRADITIONALLY, Scottish men have had the strong, silent approach when it comes to their own health. While always ready to treat a head cold as a terminal illness, they can also show an infuriating disinterest in taking a preemptive approach to good health - very often not willing to bother their doctor with what might be a minor problem.
