It never ceases to amuse me how far people will go to tamper with nature in order to maintain their "natural" diet, how much they'll abandon tradition in order to keep eating something for the sole reason that they're used to it. The latest in this trend is the supposed heart-healthy pork that has gotten headlines worldwide. We won't bother to list all the health problems unrelated to heart disease that pork consumption is associated with; the joke here is that you could do this with just about any plant food and get a food that has a terrific net gain for health, instead of this one where you hope it turns out to be a wash.

And actually, whether it's "heart healthy" or not is in doubt. Omega-3s have come under fire -- apparently their usefulness is being questioned is in doubt. Fortunately, flax seeds and oil are still very, very tasty.

I sometimes hope that people will eat so much meat that their stomach rips and they die, but other times I hope they just have a heart attack very soon. Or, specifically, while they're eating.

I'm a mean vegan.
