John Howery: Moderation in all things

Comments re article 67470 HealthLink The Heart Associations junk science diet

By John Howery

Life teaches us - from the first grade on we are taught, Sunday school teaches us, on the job we learn, life in general shows us, everywhere and everything in between demonstrates . . . moderation in all things . . .

You don't live a truly healthy life having two large fries and a large shake at every meal or all red meat and no greens, all fish and chicken at the exclusion of all else.

Too much pop, caffeine, alcohol, or a gallon of water a day; all of these dietary approaches and other extreme fads are not healthy.

I watched an interview with one of the publishing scientists of the report on one of the Tv news shows this past week and based their findings moderation was the simple message they were/are trying to deliver, nothing more exciting or outlandish.

Just, in our diets as in our lives, moderation in all things. John Howery
