There sure is a lot of confusing information out there.
With all the information, or disinformation, what’s a body to do? Not too long ago, it wasn’t unheard of to hear someone say that too much milk is bad for you. There’s even a not-milk anti-dairy movement. But now, recent information says drinking milk, besides helping a body grow, might actually help you lose weight and has other health benefits. I wonder if those studies refer to whole, unpasteurized milk, powdered milk or regular gas station two-for-six dollars-milk.
What about the water, you ask? We’re supposed to drink some ridiculous amount of water (12 glasses or something) a day to keep us healthy. But, what about all that stuff they find in that healthy water, you know the parts per million stuff? Well, then that brings up the fresh, clean, at-the-source bottled water. You do know the bottle itself actually is bad for you, leaches bad stuff into the water and poisons us. But then if we don’t eat the bottle, I guess we’re okay.
And then there is the new cellphone issue. Does it really cause brain cancer? Or was it parotid gland cancer? Do I need to stop calling the wife? Should I wear those silly earbuds everywhere I go? Or should I risk being the one cellphone user who gets brain cancer when everyone else is dying from lung cancer from smoking rolled up plant leaves?
Well, world, it is confusing. Health is confusing. Politics is confusing. Religion is confusing. So where do we go for answers? Who can we trust? Well, the doctor knows best, right? So my advice, eat two cookies and call me in the morning.
