A Little Nutrition Humor

I wanted to share something my husband received by email and passed along to me. Maybe you've seen this already, but if not, enjoy...and get an idea of what I have to put up with as a Nutritionist at my home...LOL!
After an exhaustive review of the research literature, here's the final word on nutrition and health:

1. Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.

2. Mexicans eat a lot of fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.

3. Chinese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.

4. Italians drink excessive amounts of red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.

5. Germans drink beer and eat lots of sausages and fats and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.

CONCLUSION: Eat and drink what you like. Speaking English is apparently what kills you.

    I have to say--I LOVED this! I'm still laughing!
    So much of nutritional information gets confusing--one day something's good for you and the next day it's not, or visa versa. I'm glad to finally find out that's it's speaking English that's going to do me in!

  3. I burst out laughing - woke my neighbors up!!!!!!!

    ありがとう, gracias, 谢谢, grazie, danke!

  4. I'm so glad you shared this! I'm multi-lingual, so I'm swearing off English and I'm going to the store right now to stock up on all the wine, beer, sausages, lasagna, and nachos I can eat! And if anyone wants language lessons so they can join me, just ask! LOL!!

  5. It has a great post. Thanks for sharing this post. Keep it up
