Tired Of Studies

When does it end? I noticed this piece on the health benefits of coffee in the New York Times and it occurred to me how difficult it would be to actually keep up with all of these health studies- 2 cups of coffee, 2 glasses of wine, green leafy vegetables, 2 deep fried Twinkies, 1 pound of head cheese- are you really supposed to work your diet around all this stuff?

And to top it all off, studies tend to show different things- Butter is bad for you, margarine is good- no wait, make that, margarine is bad, butter is better. And then there are these food policing assholes, who would use all these studies to have the government mandate (or "encourage") healthy diets.

So, all-in-all, I'm tired of these studies. If you're concerned with your health, exercise, eat a balanced diet, and don't overeat- and see your doctor, he can tell you health concerns specific to you. It's not that complicated ... Forget the damn studies. Leave the science to the scientists and live your life.
