I was reminded of this thread last night. Seems like damn near everyone, friends and family, that are around my age are sick and getting sicker. The exception to this was an old friend and his brother. Got the word last night that his younger brother, 56 years old, has 3 clogged arteries and may be fixing to have bypass surgery! WTF! He has always been one of these skinny, high energy guys, black belt in some martial arts, etc. Now he is unable to work and taking 8 different medications every day until the make the determination on doing the surgery.
The assumption that thin = healthy is the root of a whole lot of bad nutritional and medical advice nowadays.
