jelly donuts

You ever notice how they change what’s good and bad for you about every decade or so? I’ll give you an example; for years they said eggs were bad for you because eggs had too much cholesterol. Then they changed their minds and said eggs were good for you, or at least not that bad for you. And now WebMd® actually recommends eating eggs to prevent heart disease.

 

 

I’ll give you another one; for about fifty years they said that eating too much saturated fat is what caused heart disease. Suddenly, about a month ago, the news ran articles about huge studies that seemed to say that saturated fat had nothing to do with heart disease. So if it’s not fat, like they’d claimed for so long, then what is it? Well, now they say sugar is to blame. I know people who’ve eaten nothing but sugary foods all their lives and they’re now in their eighties. If sugar caused heart disease they’d have developed it fifty years ago, and they didn’t.

 

 

So I’m wondering what the next thing experts will change their minds about will be. I’d like it to be a democratic process. I would like to put it up to vote. My vote is for the jelly donut. I haven’t had one in decades because the experts tell me not to. In fact, a friend of mine calls donuts Wheels of Death. In the next phase of mind-changing by the so-called experts, I would like it if they announced that jelly donuts are good for your health, and that everybody should eat at least three per day in order to have good health into old age. Now that I’ve put the word out, I expect to see that article in the news in the near future. No more admonishments to eat lean meat, chicken, fish, vegetables, nuts, seeds, whole grains, fruits, glasses of red wine with dinner, do daily exercise, engage in stress management, take FDA approved preventative drugs as prescribed. No, the doctors of the future will recommend donuts. Take three and call me in the morning. Or, better yet, take three and you’ll never have to call me. Hey, it could happen!
