Your genetic susceptibility….

Shake it baby.  Shake it.

A recent study shows that too much salt in your diet can result in higher levels of sodium and blah, blah, blah, blllloooey, blay, blah, blub……blah, blah.  The Salt Police.

Well here’s the deal.  I’ve been doing some studying of my own.  I have found that people who conduct studies seem to have too much money and way too much time on their hands.  The findings seem to be factitious and fickle.  “Recent Studies” have told us that we shouldn’t each chocolate, then we should.  Wait, just dark chocolate.  Coffee’s no good for you either.  Well, now it is.  Now it’s not. Now it is.  How about wine drinkers?  Now you can have it.  Now you can’t. Hang on….. just the Red Wine.  Hmmmm…. now we think the White is okey-dokey.   There’s more dang volleying going on in these studies than at Wimbledon in June.

Carbs are under the gun recently.  Well, I like my white pasty food with lots of salt on it.  That’s what MY study shows.  Frankly, I am tired of these studies.  There was one recently that reported “wearing deodorant will increase your risk for Alzheimer’s Disease.”  Then do you know what happened?  For about a year, a lot of people had stupendous body odor, and seemed to be forgetting as much as ever.  Thankfully, a new study came out saying, that in fact, deodorant has no direct correlation with anything except preventing stinky pits.  Thank you Study People.

We have become slaves to these studies.  I say study amongst yourselves.    That is my piece of wisdom for tonight.  Go forth and study………… eat your red meat if you like it, your ketchup with the high fructose corn syrup,  and even a hot fudge sundae now and again.   Exercise 5 to 6 times a week for 30 minutes a day…… or don’t.   We all know what we are supposed to do, in our heart of hearts.   I think……..we are supposed to make the world a better place……that is what my study has shown, I think.

But it will go on and on.   I just Googled Recent Study and here was one of the top hits:  I am NOT making this up:

Mouse Study Suggests New Clues to Celiac Disease
Retinoic acid might spur digestive disorder in those with genetic susceptibility

Who the hell knew?

I don’t know what Retinoic Acid is…. but I MISS IT dearly…………………… already.
