It's Bad for you NOT to Drink a Bottle of Wine a Day. Listen to the Doctor!

 A former WHO alcohol expert claims that knocking back a bottle of wine won't do you any harm at all.  In fact he goes on to say that after spending his life studying the effects of alcohol consumption, he reckons you will be healthier as a drinker than a teetotaler.

Say no more doc, you had me at "evidence shows moderate drinking is better than abstaining". 

Some busybody from a healthy living think tank responds that "this is an unhelpful contribution to... blah-blah-blah Something-Something I'm not listening"

Now where is that corkscrew?

Apples Are Bad For You. Apples!

Seems that modern apples are pumped full of sugar, and thus killer fruits. An apple a day will kill you, and so forth.  Only the Daily Mail could have come up with this one, so heartfelt thanks to those guys.

It appears that the 'modern apple' has 50% more sugar than the apple from the early 2000's.  And it is acidic, which the Mail has reliably extrapolated into dentist's having to yank out your teeth.

Seaweed Makes You Thin

Yes, eating disgusting sea-slime grass will make you thinner.  And not just because the taste discourages you from eating too much of it.  Apparently something called 'alginate' lowers the amount of fat being absorbed by the body.

Superfoods as of now.

Here is a list of foods which have been upgraded from Regular to Super (as per webmd.com)
Note that this list almost certainly went out of date about 15 seconds after I finished writing it down.

Everything IS Bad For You! (I Suspected As Much)

To lay everyones mind to rest, the Daily Mail has helpfully produced a list of foodstuffs which will kill you.  Here they are:
-Everything which is baked, like crisps, cakes, chips and bread, for example
-Red Meat.  Especially when processed into a delicious format such as burgers or hot-dogs
-Dairy foods.  Cows are bad news in general.
-Hot things, including tea and coffee.
-Alcohol - natch.
-Peanuts, cereals and grains. See?  Nothing is safe.
-Salt.  Which is in everything, including the stuff that wasn't mentioned elsewhere.

Basically, everything you eat is going to kill you, probably of cancer.  Thanks for that Daily Mail.

Bon Apetit!
