Today's number is 49250. I feel ancient, and not science, nor medical, nor politicians are helping the matter.
Oh, why are we not born with warning labels? EVERYONE should be. "Warning, Life may be hazardous to your health."
Someone declares that there are no "Fat Japanese." NO? I can point to SUMO WRESTLERS as being grossly overweight. Some of them weigh 500,600, 700 pounds or more.
Some models and actresses are as thin as toothpicks. They starve themselves for their profession, killing themselves for fleeting fame. This isn't healthy. It's damn sad!
Around the world, some people go without food for days for various reasons: lack of money, drought, war, food shortages.
In Football (American style) you're heavy. STUPID, but heavy. I mean, why the HELL should you have to weigh 260 pounds? Or worse, look at "The Refrigerator." Doesn't he weigh up in the high 300s?
Look at me, now. I'm 5'10", and I currently weigh about as much as I did in high school. Two years ago I weighed 215. In a year's time, without doing anything special, I dropped more than 60 pounds. In fact, I dropped 70, and weighed less than what I did in Junior High. I've now stabilized and weigh 25 pounds less than what is on my license. 12 years ago I weighed 160. 8 years ago, it was 185. 4 years ago, it was 185. In 2006 I soared to 215. In 2008, I was back to 140.
We're all "Morbidly Obese" according to the medical profession. They tell us to drink juices, eat more veggies, more fruits, less red meat. To quote a well know phrase, "If we're not supposed to eat animals, why are they made of meat?"
So, we switch to juices and diet sodas, fill up on oranges and grapefruit. We grab an energy drink when we're tired. We aren't eating properly for energy. We're grabbing the Atkins's diet, the South Beach Diet, the Nutri-system plan, we join weight watchers. We may even go to the gym (After parking our car as close to the door as possible and using the escalator to go up 4 flights of stairs.)
Now dentists get in on the act. Tea is harmful to teeth. So is juice. And energy drinks are the worst. Drink water only! (But only after it's been fluoridated)
The EPA tells you that water isn't safe. Phosphorous, Mercury, PCBs, and lead are in our water. So, we don't drink that either, right? Even rain is forbidden. (Acid rain, sulfurous water)
DON'T BREATHE THE AIR! It's full of harmful gasses! Carbon Monoxide, carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide, methane -- it's all there, and all deadly. Helium, Hydrogen can kill without oxygen included. In fact, the highest O2 content is dangerous as well. It will burn you out.
NOW, politicians want to get in on the act. They want to keep you from eating. They want to tax "Fatty food." Sodas, Juice, candy. They'll want to tax meat, veggies. It ALL makes a person fat.
It's time to stop the insanity. We have to do it before all of us are a bunch of energyless, walking toothpicks without teeth.
That's food for thought. And if science, the medical profession, and dental profession have their way, all we'll be able to do is THINK. And, of course, the Government will tax that.
That's the problem. Govt, medical -- they're part of the PROBLEM, not the solution. And that's the FAT FACT... WARNING: LIVING MAY BE HAZARDOUS TO YOUR HEALTH...THAT'S THE TRUTH -- AS I SEE IT!
