To meat or not to meat: that is the question. Whether ’tis wiser to suffer deprivation or ignore “the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune.”
The dizzying array of expert “advice” for achieving longevity now rivals auto-industry recalls. Just when we settle into our medical comfort zone, we’re zapped by yet another turnabout.
Hormone therapy, mammograms, hysterectomies, back surgery, antibiotics, statins, vitamins, canned goods, food additives and pesticides once customary, are now suspect or ill-advised.
Waiting in the wings: cell phone radiation, vaping, farmed fish, plastics, toxic mattresses and “stress,” due to the uncertainly of what, if anything, is truly beneficial and safe.
Never miss a local story.
Heads or tails should suffice.
