KD, I noticed you blotted the gal out next to you to protect the innocent. Just kidding. Peeling off 30 LBS would do wonders for me as well, the 30 I got after I turned 50. |
I think there are some areas that bear investigation. For one, the cities of the US have been pouring a biologically altering substance in our water for around 50 years, give or take. I recall they started adding flouride to the water here around 1965. The stuff is an industrial toxin, affects the thyroid, skeletal structure, brain chemistry and who knows what else. The statements are alway, kids are fatter now than they were when? I think there is a possible link and there is now hundreds of billions going into drug to treat what may be caused by this chemical. The only support for this policy is the ADA, who makes a fortune fixing brittle teeth, quite likely brought about by excessive consumption of flouride.
The other problem is quite likely corn sugar. I have heard it doesn't metabolize like cane sugar. It damn sure doesn't taste like it. Add this to the fact that consumption of soft drinks has likely gone up significantly. I do work in the heat and I will buy a drink from time to time. They come in 52 ounce and 64 ounce cups. This was a foreign idea 40 years ago, the idea of drinking that much Coke at one time. I had a job at Jack in the Box while in high school. Their largest drink then was 20 OZ. That is a small in a lot of places today.
