From the Who Knew File:

some amazing food facts
(all anonymous internet research)

I'll drink to that...


After an exhaustive review of the research literature, here's the final word on nutrition and heart 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.
6. The French eat goose liver, brie and red wine by the gallon and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.
7. The Brits eat clotted cream, scones and beef wellington and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.

Conclusion: Eat and drink what you like. Being an American is apparently what kills us.

WATER: The following  will probably amaze and startle you..

One glass of water shuts down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a University study.

Lack of water is the #1 trigger  of daytime fatigue.

Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of water a day could significantly ease back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers.

A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short-term memory, trouble with basic math, and  difficulty focusing on the computer screen.

Drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of colon cancer by 45%, plus it can slash the risk of breast cancer by 79%, and one is 50% less likely to develop bladder cancer.

Are you drinking the amount of water  you should every day?

(No kidding, all of the above are true...(at least it is if you believe all the stuff floating around the internet, but why not give it a try, what could it hurt?)

The real difference between fat and thin people is that thin people:

avoid eating popcorn in the movies because it gets their hands greasy.
split a large combination pizza with three friends.
think Oreo cookies are for kids.
think that doughnuts are indigestible.
become so absorbed in a weekend project they forget to have lunch.
fill the candy dish on their desks with paper clips.
lose their appetites when they're depressed.
throw out stale potato chips.
don't celebrate with a hot-fudge sundae every time they lose a pound.
try all the salads at the buffet, leaving room for only one dessert.
bring four cookies into the TV room instead of a box.
