Thread Name: BS: liver detox ... 'yuk' or Wow!' ??
Subject: RE: BS: liver detox ... 'yuk' or Wow!' ??
I've heard lemon is good for the liver, and also that garlic is good somehow regarding parasites. I haven't looked into it far beyond the fact that I happen to like lemon and garlic. I was especially glad to hear that mediteranean food is very healthy. Great! Now I'm just waiting for the good news about french fries.

Unfortunately, I only eat and do things I come across that I like, and I wait to hear in the ongoing daily newses that they are good for me. Sooner or later I expect to hear striking new evidence that it's healthy to do unhealthy things. Ever since elementary school nutrition class it's always seemed a confused, contradictory, propagandastic, highly speculative subject, with too damn much news all the time. I bet it could support a 24 hour constant cable channel--on second thought, I bet, somewhere, it does. I speculate on my own authority that what I enjoy will be discovered as beneficial, sooner or later, and if nothing else I hope to will myself my own placebo effect.
