Lots of things can be bad for you though, and every body chemistry is different. My newest discovery is that high levels of iron could be responsible for many diseases as people age, particularly in males, and that regular blood donation among men is important.

I wouldn't worry about eating oranges, apples, and grapes in small to moderate quantities daily... can after can of regular mountain dew? That could be more problematic in the long run... and refined store bought orange juice, or any pasteurized fruit juices, are really no more healthy than soda and should only be consumed in moderation and not seen as 'health drinks'

Just a reminder before anyone gets too serious.

A good bit of this thread seems to be intended as "Tongue in Cheek" and not as a biology lesson.

Well in that case I think a few thank you to all are in order

I would like to thank all human females and their modified sweat glands. Weather they were modified naturally or in a doctors office. My eyes thank you.

And cows well I thank you for helping me eat my cereal in the morning. Cereal and cow sweat. What's not to like. My tummy thanks you.

But I can't figure out why anyone would intentionally try to plant this image in a person's head - anyone older than about 5, at least. It's either very juvenile or deliberately off-putting - and either way, it seems pretty unnecessary.

OK, then.

I love it when people see a title plain as day, then feel the need to open the thread and opine on how useless and/or revolting it is.

Forums are for discussion.


P.S. I'm going to the farmer's market tomorrow where I can buy freshly collected honey, complete with thick honeycomb. Can't wait!
