An article on Yahoo today shows a leading story that mummies had clogged arteries. Most people read this and say to themselves,”See even ancient Egyptians had clogged arteries. I can’t worry about it!” They lead a good and decadent life. They ate a lot of meat. They suffered from the same diseases we do. We shouldn’t read these types of articles and let ourselves off the hook. We make ourselves sick by our life-style. Change your life-style and live healthier. It’s a very simple rule. Eat more of what God and nature gives us and less of what man makes. Eat less animal protein and more vegetable protein. Relax and do meditation. Exercise and stay fit. It really is that simple. Each of these are things you choose to do. Choose correctly and your body will stay healthy.

Shine from Yahoo ran an article on sodas causing depression, http://shine.yahoo.com/healthy-living/sweet-sodas-soft-drinks-may-raise-risk-depression-183000091.html . They say a new study of more than 260,000 people links soda consumption to depression. Is it any wonder there are more and more cases of depression in our young? Soda consumption is way up from when I was a kid and so is depression related diseases. The study showed 4 or more servings of soda a day lead to a 30% greater risk of depression.

They said in this article: “A 2,000-calorie-a-day diet should have no more than 66 grams of fat, less than 20 grams saturated; 2,400 milligrams of sodium; and 300 grams of total carbohydrate, including sugars.” They describe in this article bad foods such as:
a) A 20 oz smoothie that has 1044 calories, 35g fat and 120g of sugar
b) 20 oz Grande that has 510 calories, 19g fat and 16g of sugar
