> In the beginning, God covered the earth with broccoli, cauliflower and
> spinach, with green, yellow and red vegetables of all kinds so Man and
> Woman would live long and healthy lives.
> Then using God's bountiful gifts, Satan created Dairy Ice Cream and
> Magnums. And Satan said "You want hot fudge with that?" and Man said "Yes"
> and Woman said "I'll have one too, with chocolate chips". And Lo, they
> gained 10 pounds.
> And God created the healthy yoghurt that Woman might keep the figure that
> Man found so fair.
> And Satan brought forth white flour from the wheat and sugar from the cane
> and combined them. And Woman went from size 12 to size 18.
> So God said "Try my fresh green salad". And Satan presented Blue Cheese
> dressing and garlic croutons on the side. And Man and Woman unfastened
> their belts following the repast.
> God then said "I have sent you healthy vegetables and olive oil in which to
> cook them".
> And Satan brought forth deep fried coconut king prawns, butter dipped
> lobster chunks and chicken fried steak, so big it needed its own platter,
> and Man's cholesterol went through the roof.
> God presented the potato, naturally low in fat and brimming with potassium
> and good nutrition.
> Then Satan peeled off the healthy skin and sliced the starchy centre into
> chips and deep fried them in animal fats, adding copious quantities of
> salt. And Man and Woman put on more pounds.
> God then brought forth running shoes, so that his Children might lose those
> extra pounds.
> And Satan came forth with a cable TV with remote control so Man would not
> have to toil changing the channels. And Man and Woman laughed and cried
> before the flickering light and started wearing stretch jogging suits.
> Then God gave lean beef so that Man night consume fewer calories and still
> satisfy his appetite.
> And Satan created McDonalds and the 99p double cheeseburger. Then Satan
> cried "You want fries with that?" and Man replied "Yes, and super size
> 'em!". And Satan said "It is good" and man and Woman went into cardiac
> arrest.
> God sighed....... And created quadruple bypass surgery.
> And then........ Satan chuckled and created the National Health Service.
> The final word on nutrition - After exhaustive research, here's the final
> word:-
> 1. Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.
> 2. Mexicans eat a lot of fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.
> 3. Chinese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks
> than us.
> 4. Italians drink excessive amounts of red wine and suffer fewer heart
> attacks than us.
> 5. Germans drink beer and eat lots of sausages and fats and suffer fewer
> heart attacks than us.
> 6. French eat foie gras, full fat cheese and drink red wine and suffer
> fewer heart attacks than us.
> Conclusion:
> Eat and drink what you like............
> Speaking English is apparently what kills you.
