I don't eat fast food. I don't eat too much processed crap though either, even though it's impossible to get away from it.

yah, live off vegetables you eat from your own garden. Then you can get beat up by a 15 year old girl.

I think all of the unnatural, pesticide laced, processed food I eat creates such a hostile environment, germs find it hard to thrive in my body, they move on to easier prey, you know, those people that eat all that healthy food. :biggrin:

Well I know what my mom would say:
-Drink your carrot juice
-Don't go outside with wet hair
-Eat plenty of garlic (don't give me that bad breath excuse!)
-Put some clothes on it's freezing outside!(this is assuming you don't have on 2 sweaters and a jacket already :wink: )
:uhh:

I live off vegetables, and because I am not antagonistic there are no 15 year old girls that want to beat me up.

BTW- I have only been sick one time since I stopped eating animals. It was from ingesting bacteria from a dirty cup. I use my own cup so as not to generate garbage. I learned my lesson, soy bacteria can be nasty, so now I wash my cup regularly.

I just knew soy had to be worse than eating meat! :rofl: Oh, wait, hmm...which site was it I found yesterday...in the Bird Flu thread in politics, I have a bunch of links about agriculture. One of those also had a table of hormones found in agricultural products (plants and animals)...the amount of estrogens per unit weight in a steer WITH an estrogen implant was hardly anything compared to soy...the difference even surprised me; I knew soy was high in estrogens, but didn't realize how high. :bugeye: :rofl: So, all those people afraid of hormones in their meat run off and eat soy. :devil:

The best thing you can do is avoid crowded public places, and especially avoid children.

Always good advice. :tongue2: They look harmless enough, but they're actually little disease-infested vermin, or walking bioreactors! :grumpy:
