The Human Comedy

I know most of my readers have been heavily indoctrinated about food

and think they already know the truth about dietetics. I also know

that so much information (and misinformation) is coming out about

diet that most of my readers are massively confused about the

subject. These are two powerful reasons many readers will look with

disbelief at what this chapter has to say and take no action on my

data, even to prove me wrong.

Let me warn you. There is a deep-seated human tendency to put off

taking responsibilities, beautifully demonstrated by this old joke.

A 14 year old boy was discovered masturbating by his father, who

said, "son, you shouldn't do that! If you keep it up you'll

eventually go blind!"

"But father," came the boy's quick reply. "It feels good. How about

if I don't quit until I need to wear glasses?"
