The Final Word On Nutrition

The Final Word On Nutrition

PostBy: Richard S. On: Wed Jun 11, 2008 9:53 am

After an exhaustive review of the research literature, here's the final word on nutrition and health.:

1. Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.
2. Mexicans eat a lot of fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.
3. Chinese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.
4. Italians drink excessive amounts of red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.
5. Germans drink beer and eat lots of sausages and fats and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.
6. The French eat foie-gras, full fat cheese and drink red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than us

CONCLUSION: Eat and drink what you like. Speaking English is apparently what kills you.

Another difference is that most of the people in those countries take 2 to3 times the amount of vacation of the average American.

Americans consume over 70% of the worlds prescription drugs, one out of every two Americans is taking at least one prescription drug (not to mention all the over the counter stuff that will kill you!), eat mostly processed non-nutritive food, allow our meat to be treated with hormones and drugs while still living, and we allow additives such as red and yellow dye that are not even legal for food use in other countries because of the adverse affects. So yeah I say if you are going to consume all those things, eat and drink what you want, might as well enjoy yourself before kicking the bucket at an early age! :dancing: :drunk: :wine: :roll:

I think the processed foods is probably the biggest problem. We don't eat much at that crap in my house but there is some, a little isn't going to kill you neither is going to Mcdonalds once a week. Here's the full text, the first part I posted above was the ending:

In the beginning God covered the earth with broccoli, cauliflower and spinach, with green, yellow and red vegetables of all kinds so Man and Woman would live long and healthy lives.

Then using God's bountiful natural gifts, Satan created Dairy Ice Cream and Magnums. And Satan said, 'You want hot fudge with that?' And Man said, 'Yes!' And Woman said, 'I'll have one too with chocolate chips'. And lo they gained 10 pounds.

And God created the healthy yoghurt that woman might keep the figure that man found so fair.

And Satan brought forth white flour from the wheat and sugar from the cane and combined them. And Woman went from size 12 to size 14.

So God said, 'Try my fresh green salad'. And Satan presented Blue Cheese dressing and garlic croutons on the side. And Man and Woman unfastened their belts following the repast.

God then said 'I have sent you healthy vegetable and olive oils in which to cook them'.

And Satan brought forth deep fried coconut king prawns, butter-dipped lobster chunks and crispy fried chicken fried, and pepper-sauced T-bone steaks so big it needed its own platter, and Man's cholesterol went through the roof.

Then God brought forth the potato; naturally low in fat and brimming with potassium and good nutrition.

Then Satan peeled off the healthy skin and sliced the starchy centre into chips and deep-fried them in animal fats adding copious quantities of salt. And Man put on more pounds. God then brought forth running shoes so that his Children might lose those extra pounds.

And Satan came forth with a cable TV with remote control so Man would not have to toil changing the channels. And Man and Woman laughed and cried before the flickering light and started wearing stretch jogging suits.

Then God gave lean beef so that Man might consume fewer calories and still satisfy his appetite.

And Satan created McDonalds and the 99p double cheeseburger. Then Satan said 'You want fries with that?' and Man replied, 'Yes, and super size 'em'. And Satan said, 'It is good.' And Man and Woman went into cardiac arrest.

God sighed ....... and created quadruple by-pass surgery.

And then ........... Satan chuckled and created the HMO.

:lol: :lol:

That is right on the mark, keep it simple and find out what is in the stuff you are eating. If you don't know what it is or can't pronounce it, don't eat it. :D

I hope cheeseburgers, Reese Cups and Pepsi are health foods.
