July 17th Living is Bad For You

Recently I have been reading that health professionals have decided that sitting is bad for you. We should be standing at our work stations. Then I read contrary advice that actually standing for too long is bad for you. Which makes sense - ask a factory worker who stands on concrete all day how they feel.

Which lead me to think about all the 'health advice' doled out. Remember when eggs were bad for you. Now they are the best thing since sliced bread. Wait, hold that thought, because bread is bad for you as it has gluten in it. Gluten is bad for nearly everyone, all of a sudden. Fat was evil. To the extent that we should be wary of healthy foods such as Avocadoes as they are fat laden. Yes I do remember reading that theory. Now fat isn't such a bad guy, it is the type of fat we should be wary of. Which leads me to the latest evil. Sugar! Now it makes sense that refined sugar in copious amounts is bad for you.

I am not disputing any of the above. After trying to work out what is bad for you, and forget about keeping up with the Joneses, as now we have to keep up with the bads. In conclusion maybe living is bad for us!!

Don't worry I am not suicidal by any means.but maybe the dissemination of this information should be focussing on what is good for us,instead of constantly berating us with what is bad?

To clear my head a walk was needed. It was a lovely day and wonderful out - so I actually was surprised to find out what the actual temperature was. What a difference a blue sky makes - and that is good for you!
