    They just started streaming this on Netflix. Its pretty obvious, "you are what you eat"...right? Anyway, I'm sure we all want to stick around long enough to see at least one more playoff win ;)


    On a serious note, my Mom was diagnosed with type-2 diabetes a year or so back, and the doctor tried to shove some pills at her. My dad basically blew up at the doctor and told my mom to quit eating the crap all her co-workers would eat at lunch (we are Indian, so 99.9% of the time its home-cooked all veggie meal). She cut it out, went back to her normal diet, and at her next checkup they didn't even mention the diabetes. Finally my mom brought it up, i.e. "the last time I was here you said I had diabetes". Well, they just said something like looks like whatever you are doing is working, because you certainly don't have it.

    It is pretty compelling to think about how much our collective health could improve by changing the stuff we shove into our pie holes...
