Strike one: Harvard.
Strike two: Professor.
Strike three: Preaching from the pulpit to The Great Unwashed.

Mission Accomplished. He got his name in the news. Now Dr. Haavahd, go home and drink your martinis and shut up. Your work here is done.

I eat six fries at a time and then shove 6 more in for my second mouthfull. Isn't this what the Harvard Guy recommends?

My son laughs at me because I eschew fast food, but about twice a year I get a powerful hankering for fries and just HAVE to have them - and not just 6. A whole order. The bigger the better. The rest of the year, no fries, no potato chips, no problem.

He must have tiny hands. I am small, and can cram in at least seven or eight at a time.

A lot of fast food fries are terrible. If you're going to eat fries, eat good ones.

Yeah, but presumably you wash your hands after toileting, whereas you may not wash the salad leaves, especially when eating away from home.

This is one of the reasons I never take these articles seriously. And when they come from a Harvard professor and is printed in the NY Times I take it even less seriously.

I guess he earned his professor status. Who whoulda thunk fries are bad for you. Hey Mr. Professor, just say fries are bad for you. We don't need a specific count.

I'll eat only 6 fries. If they're loaded with bacon, cheese and sour cream, that is. On the other hand, I wonder if I limit myself to 6 huge crinkle cut or steak fries would I be all right in that case? Questions, questions, always these questions.
