    Because we are conditioned from early childhood NOT to pay attention to what makes us feel better ... and in fact to accept many things that make us feel worse. If you think that something makes you feel better, but a doctor or religious authority didn't tell you that, you must be wrong!

    I could go on about artificial light ... and a few other things that I've probably already said too much about on this board ...

    I should package my opinion and sell it as the latest diet fad. My opinion is that there is no one right diet for everyone--and I don't think you can predict your best diet based on your blood type anymore than your zodiac sign. You figure out your best diet based on trial & error. More meat and less carbs will work for some people, less meat will work for others. The one thing that I do think is true for everyone is that we all eat too much sugar & HFCS, and processed foods with weird chemicals. (And by "we all" I mean everyone except those few who have super will power.)

    Nah, it'll never catch on. Too sensible!
    I agree!

    I'll see your artificial light and raise you concrete/pavement, chlorinated pools and pressurized airplane cabins...
