Everything Good For You Will Kill You

Just when Brian thought that everything bad is good for you, it turns out that everything good is bad for you.

Vitamins? Better not buy the big container, you probably won't need that many.

Low-fat dairy foods? Fine, if you like sterility.

Garlic? Doesn't lower cholesterol, it's just tasty.

Fresh air...

When are they just going to admit that we don't have any idea what is good or bad for us? Eat what you enjoy. At some point it will probably be good for you, and if it does turn out to kill you, at least you enjoyed the trip.

Remember in Woody Allen's "Sleeper," when the scientists take him out of cryogenic suspension? They call up his biography and discover he was a Health Food Store owner. One scientist is puzzled and the other scientist, having done his research, tells him some of the products they sold-- kelp, wheat germ, etc. The other scientist is aghast-- you mean they didn't know all the things that really promoted longevity-- marbled steak, cigarettes?
