If you’re playing the stock market, you may want to consider buying McDonald’s, Burger King and Krispy Kreme first thing in the morning. Here’s the latest “whoops, we got it wrong” medical study (this one released by the CDC):
From Associated Press: “Being overweight is nowhere near as big a killer as the government thought, ranking No. 7 instead of No. 2 among the nation's leading preventable causes of death, according to a startling new calculation from the CDC…Based on the new calculation, excess weight would drop from the second leading cause of preventable death, after smoking, to seventh. It would fall behind car crashes and guns on the list of killers…The new analysis found that obesity — being extremely overweight — is indisputably lethal. But like several recent smaller studies, it found that people who are modestly overweight actually have a lower risk of death than those of normal weight.”
So go ahead, have another quart of ice cream. It’s good for you! “They” just said so!
OK, I ask yet again, who sponsored this study…the snack food association?
By the way, the CDC put out another study today that basically said: oops, we were wrong, it’s actually not such a good idea to have two drinks a day. It doesn’t help prevent heart disease after all – sorry about that.
So, throw away the Jack Daniels (which has no carbs by the way), and have yourself another pizza, thick crust, extra cheese.
Here’s to your heart…
