News from the world of medicine

As a public service for readers hoping to avoid heart disease, here is the most up-to-date information available on diet and heart health:

 1. The Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans. 

 2. The Mexicans eat a lot of fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans. 

 3. The Japanese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans. 

 4. The Italians drink a lot of red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans. 

 5. The Germans drink a lot of beer and eat a lot of fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans. 

In other words, eat and drink whatever you like. Speaking English is apparently what kills you.

    • Yes, those are best avoided. If there’s one thing you learn from reading, listening to, or watching the so-called experts pontificate on this subject, it’s that they never agree with each other, either on causes or cures. 🙂
