News, but not the serious kind
All aboard for the Lipitor City Express!
Readers of this blog know I have little patience with “stories” that not only state the obvious, but find it necessary to deliver the information in list form, for folks who are intimidated by paragraphs.
SPOILER ALERT: Three of the 10 have the word “fried” in their names, and two more have the word “cheese.”
That’s right, it turns out fried chicken, fried eggs and French fries are not actually health foods. Nor are cheeseburgers or macaroni and cheese.
It gets better. Did you know that snacks may be bad for you? “Whether it’s fried, au gratin, crispy, or stuffed, many of the things we love to eat are bad for our cholesterol levels.”
What an eye-opener! No ice cream for me from now on, I’ll just opt for the 10 doughnuts, instead.
The “story” further reminds us that liver is very high in cholesterol. Hey, thanks for making me eat so much of it when I was growing up, Mom. Why didn’t you just shoot me, instead?
