A Big Mac Record...

What do you think about this? A guy in the US has just ‘celebrated’ eating his 25,000th Big Mac. He certainly has an obsession for these burgers. He even keeps the wrappers! But, according to the doctors he is not in bad ‘health’ for his age.

Not sure what that means and how they are measuring that. Most 57 year old men are not exactly in good health anyway.

The reality is that it is impossible to be anywhere optimal health on such a diet. Did you ever see the documentary 'Supersize Me' I think it was called in which some guy lived on hamburgers for a number of weeks and his vital signs were measured.

The deterioration was quite significant over a relatively short period, so much so that his doctors encouraged him to cut the experiment short as they were worried about him getting seriously ill.

Maybe he took supplements to help avoid getting sick on such a nutritiously poor diet, or maybe he is one of these lucky people who have exceptionally good genes.

Irrespective there is no doubt in my mind that he is certainly reducing his life expectantly short, but most importantly he is setting himself up for some serious degenerative disease. His organs will be all working overtime to keep him functioning and at some point they will just give up through lack of quality fuel.

Have your products been affected by the recent natural disasters that affected the Asian countries? What testing has been done to see if the quality has changed since these events (the radiation from the plants where the tsunami and other natural disasters hit – I made a purchase today and thought about this after—

I believe this individual was featrued in the movie Supersize Me.  My understanding is that he ate only the big macs and did not have soda or fries which are poisons basically.  I believe this limited the damage of his obsession.

Carbs are the killers – cause Glycation. I did not get better UNTIL I started eating meat as recommended by the Weston Price Foundation – it saved my life. Fast food burgers are not the best, but with just the meat – its can be a healthy food. You just have to discriminate. The more cholesterol I eat the better my numbers get. My HDL is in the 90’s now – Thanks Mcdonalds!!

Thank you Crystal for pointing that out to Miss. Actually, a couple of weeks ago I had a meeting in Bangkok with one of the executives of Kaneka and was able to ‘grill’ him. There is no doubt that there is zero problem with the Ubquinol that we buy from them.
