Sometimes when I don’t feel like taking the time to mill flaxseed or pre-soak my steel-cut oats, I think to myself, “Look at all the people who do perfectly fine on conventional diets–does this granola stuff really matter?”
But then last night I was at Walgreens and saw the long line of people waiting at the pharmacy. This in a small town with a handful of other busy pharmacies as well. Most of the people looked relatively healthy, but I can only conclude that their apparent health is dependent on a chemical concoction offered by corporations with tenuous public health track records.
Maybe conventional diets aren’t working that well for us after all.
