The Word Really IS Getting Out!

I love comic strips. As a child of the 50's and 60's, I grew up on them, and even now start every morning reading all my favorite strips. Yes, they're on-line instead of in newspapers now, but because of that I've found more comics to love than ever before.

Non Sequitur is one of those strips. Sure, they sometimes go off in tangents I don't care about, like the old New England fisherman rambling on about mermaids now and then, but it's usually pleasant enough.

On November 10th the artist started doing a story line that led up to a character's heart attack. Look at what today's strip is:

When comic strip artists start extolling the virtues of a plant based diet you know it's gone mainstream!

Chicken Adenovirus as Cause for Human Obesity?

Just think of how many of us fat people were told (or our parents were told, when we were fat kids) not to eat red meat, to eat skinless, usually broiled, chicken instead.

It's amazing how many studies in recent years are coming out which explain how people get obese, even if they eat and exercise exactly the same as the rest of their families. Heck, many of us eat even much less and exercise much more, yet we remain fat while their weight either remains stable or they lose while eating more and moving less.

The human body is an amazing thing! It doesn't follow the laws of physics, only those of biology.
