    Eat a moderate balanced diet and hope that your genetics give you a long life.

    These "experts" are idiots.

    They had us using margarine instead of butter!

    They claim eggs are dangerous!

    They've convince many of us that aspirin is deadly and convinced us to instead use far FAR FAR more dangerous analgesics.

    Seriously, you cannot TRUST the "experts" when it comes to diet.

    Your GRANDMOTHER is (or probably was) a better dietician than modern medicine.

    Last week I bought the unsalted Rustic Tuscan bread from Eataly. Yuck. The bag probably had more flavor. I went back and bought the Classic Tuscan and the Raisin Tuscan too and nearly orgasmed...well OK maybe I'm exaggerating, but only a little

    i try real hard not to use salt...there is enough salt hidden in processed foods....

    now put a damn watermelon and a salt shaker in front of me.......it will look like a blizzard

    but we should all remove the salt shaker from the table (imho)
