I love a good salad. Yet I also love iced cream. I’m back to trying to staying closer to a vegetarian diet because I’ve been reading The China Study. My weight got up a little over Christmas and I want to get it down. Yet what concerns me most is the research connecting milk products with prostrate cancer in men. I’d like to avoid cancer, but there are times I enjoy some creamy goodness. It makes me wonder why something so innocent as a chocolate shake carries the potential to kill you.
My wife and I mostly avoid milk anyway. But milk products – strictly speaking – cover the full range, including cheese and yoghurt. Sure takes the fun out. Of course, we can just take all the drugs to treat the symptoms, or we can eat differently. Someone I knew died recently from that disease. Makes me stop and consider what can happen.
