My parents used this phrase when my sister and I would repeat each other's silliness. LOL
But to answer my question: it is not necessarily so as a study on caloric intake reveals in a weekly e-mail I receive from the Medicare Rights Center, a consumer health care advocate. The graphic results can be seen in a picture of the two monkies used in the study which is linked below.
"A newly-released study by University of Wisconsin-Madison scientists shows a link between a restricted-calorie diet, longer life, and delayed onset of age-related problems such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, and brain atrophy.
The study looked at the correlation between caloric intake and incidence of disease and lifespan in rhesus macaques. According to the study, a calorie-restricted diet reduced the risk of developing an age-related disease threefold and increased survival. Further, the restricted-calorie diet seemed to better preserve the parts of the brain responsible for problem solving and short-term memory, as motor speed.
Some calorie restriction studies have been peformed with human subjects, also showing a decrease in cardiovascular disease as subjects age. But more research needs to be done, especially to see if a restricted-calorie diet could help us learn more about how memory loss and dementia could be averted.
See a summary of the study on WebMD. Find the original study in Science Magazine online."
Y'all are too funny with your puns!
I read labels to be sure nothing coming from animals is in it. I have read that fruits and vegetables with thick skin do not need to be organic. And, I try to eat the super foods (blueberries, broccoli, etc) and include flax seed.
Since I have become vegan, I cook more and have gotten to the point of really enjoying cooking.
