Daniel, I'll bring the tortillas.

Comment by Joan Denoo on January 30, 2014 at 12:54pm

I'll be right over for breakfast, Daniel! What are eggs for if not for salsa and tabasco!

I would be dead several times over if not for medicines and dumb luck. And a surgeon snd medical team.

Now time for some scrambled eggs, salsa, and hash browns with tabasco

Yes, the rules were basic, I still use them. But sometimes you come into a household where nobody remembers these rules, and you find that those people are for more often ill or infected with whatever goes around.

Oh! and sneeze and cough into your elbo.

Chris, your response rings a bell for me. I remember my grandmother saying washing your hands before you eat, flush the toilet with the lid down, don't touch food if you haven't washed your hands and wash the food. Don't leave water on the cupboards or table, clean up after yourself. Change your underwear every day. Wash bedding at least once a week. Lay towels out to dry before putting them in the hamper. Hang your clothes so they don't touch the floor. Don't leave food out where the flies and mice can get to them. 

Simple things, but things that made a difference in preventing the spread of disease. To those simple chores, add sewage systems, clean water, and antibiotics, and we do live a nice long healthy life hopefully.

I still live on my own version of the paleo diet, because it works for me. It keeps me healthy and with low carbs I have less craving.

And of course the ancients died early: most of us would be dead by now without sewage systems, clean water and antibiotics.

Patricia, excellent point!

science news.  Humans are living so much longer today compared with the rest of human history that the probability of dying at 72 is similar to the death odds our ancestors likely faced at 30.

So much for the paleo diet.

I also love fruits and vegetables.  Especially home grown.  Some of the grocery store versions might as well be made from paper mache.

Good reading Grinning, thanks!

I like a salad & fresh fruits, but a ''raw'' diet doesn't interest me in the least. I like to cook & try new things if my innards will handle it. 

I do notice nobody mentions the ancients dying by age 40 or so.

Grinning Cat, thanks for this information. Pollan makes more sense than many of the food gurus. I'm reposting.
