Health Trip

Monday, April 20, 2009 at 2:00 am 6 comments

For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.  Apparently Newton’s third law of motion also applies to health theories.

Have you noticed that everything seems to be bad for us these days?  One health report will herald the benefits of a certain nutrient, health regimen, or fad of the month, and then another report will proclaim the inherent dangers of the same.  What’s a person to do?

vitamin-pillsMultivitamins  
Proponents: Our staple diet of Cheeze Whiz and Oreo cookies requires supplementation for optimal health. 
Opponents:  Vitamins have fillers and harmful additives.  Their industrial sources include waste sludge.  Um, YUCK!

Vaccinations
Proponents:  Vaccinations are necessary to safeguard public health and keep the cooties at bay. 
Opponents:  Vaccines are tainted with lead, mercury and other harmful substances and possibly cause Autism. (It’s sunscreenreally scary being a parent right now.) 

Sunscreen
Proponents: Don’t leave home without it, otherwise you’re a walking melanoma magnet.
Opponents:   Sunscreen is made with chemicals which become deadly when exposed to heat.  Hello ?!?

fruits-and-veggiesUnfortunately, the madness extends to food.  While we are encouraged to partake of a well balanced diet, genetically engineered foods, pesticides, contaminated water supplies, and polluted air seem to be working against us.

 

Back to my initial question: “what’s a person to do?”

How about this?  Stay indoors, exercise 24/7,  and be fed by intravenous drip.  What’s that?  The plastic in the IV tubing may cause cancer?  Well, that’s it.  I give up.
