    That’s because the bugs won’t eat the junk she cooks! They starve to death. It’s the same principle as sulfa drugs.

    From the 1970s to now, “health foods” have seldom been healthy.

    Near Hilt, California, there is a spring that flows like bright red pudding from the arsenic sulphide in it. They used to bottle it as a “health drink.” I would guess from that idea, that the underlying concept of “healthy” by the fringes, hasn’t changed very much.
    I miss when the Feds were actually using best available science to determine better ways to eat and live. For about 15 years, it’s been one unhealthy fad after another. From dumping body composition for BMI in order to claim everyone not looking like a fashion model is “obese” to eating essentially nothing but what they used to call “empty calories.” There’s some irony that the First Lady is considered obese under the BMI. Under body composition, she would be normal. A body builder at my former church had to cut back on the weights because her BMI was too much for the Army. “too fat”, right? Despite being maybe 10% body fat.

    BMI RIP – or maybe not.

    The Fed has consistently said, eat your vegetables, don’t go hog wild on the meats. Get some grains. And if your grandmother can’t pronounce it, it’s probably best left on the shelf. In other words, eat foods they would have eaten 100 years ago, get sufficient exercise, and you should be all right.

    Eating healthy food is smart, but Andy HAS to realize that having meat is part of a healthy diet, too.

    And given how short liver people were 100 years ago, that is not good advice.

    If you work out and not sit in a chair or couch 14 hours a day, you really don’t have to watch what you eat all that much. Kids ate McDonalds and other junk food all the time 20 years ago like today but they went outside and played! Today, Mothers don’t make their kids go outside and do things. Look at your local ballfield. Bet it is empty most of the time. You used to have to wait to play. It isn’t the food people, it’s the lack of doing anything physical.

    Going totally vegan isn’t as healthy as it’s claimed, considering that an actor who had done so and said he felt really healthy, died of a heart attack at 54 years old. All the studies done on food are always refuting previous studies, it’s hard to know what is the actual truth anymore.

    you are half right. All people need to work out more, not just kids. But the food we eat now days is not as nutritional as it used to be. And you didn’t get to eat at McDonald’s every single day. It was a treat, not the norm. Junk food is more readily available and cheaper now days too, that doesn’t help. And too many parents aren’t at home during dinner time to make a well balance meal, they are working and have to let there child eat a t.v. dinner or eat out. It’s the whole culture now daysthat has lead to us being fat, and its very sad.

    I’ve asked three different nutritionists, and all three said that they believe that a vegan diet is healthier than a non-vegan diet. One of the three said that a vegan needs to plan carefully to make sure that they get all necessary nutrients, while the other two said that if your diet is varied, then you don’t need to worry about getting all of the nutrition that you need from a vegan diet. One of the three recommends a vegan diet to his clients; the other two said that they don’t actively promote the vegan diet simply because they don’t believe that many people are willing to follow it. That having been said, nobody can cite undeniable proof that any diet is the best diet, since human lives are too complex and varied for a comprehensive study to say with scientific veracity what the ideal diet is. Anecdotal evidence, however, provides compelling evidence that a plant-based, low fat, whole foods diet is quite healthy.

    Yeah, one individual having a heart attack is proof positive that a vegan diet is unhealthy.

    Pretty timely that they’re rerunning this strip at the start of cold and flu season. Time to break out the juice and chicken soup.

    I think that the idea of a cold is to affect your sinuses so that you can’t SMELL the Glop. It doesn’t really deaden your tongue’s sense of taste, which is only part of the sensation that you ge from food. But smart Jason might know that.
